- At home: organized tasks for the week and the day. Scanned the blogscape, left a substantive comment on one.
- Morning Prayer in the cathedral (after conferring with the Archdeacon on a range of issues).
- Looked in on the Dean, who professed to be “85% there” after his weekend bout of illness.
- Took care of a relatively minor but time-sensitive administrative chore on behalf of one of the priests of the diocese.
- Addressed another relatively minor but time-sensitive Nashotah-related concern.
- Via text message, arranged a phone date with the Dean of Nashotah House.
- Refined, edited, and printed a work text of my Ash Wednesday homily (I’ll be at the cathedral).
- Lunch at home–leftovers.
- Dashed off a short article for the next issue of the Springfield Current.
- Kept my phone appointment with Dean Peay at Nashotah. We talked for about 30 minutes.
- Saw to a few details concerning two upcoming trips: to North Carolina next week for a House of Bishops meeting, and to north Florida in early April for a Communion Partners (bishops) meeting.
- Dealt by email with a fairly substantial stack of miscellany: condolence note to a colleague bishop whose wife just died, question from a layperson in the diocese, question from a priest in Sri Lanka (yes, my reach is global), question from one of the editors of The Living Church, small but of administrative detritus leftover from the clergy retreat.
- Further refined the draft job description for a diocesan Director of Communications.
- Devotions in the cathedral, looked in on the Pancake Supper, EP (short-form) in the car on the way home.
