Ss Simon & Jude

  • Task planning at home; 38 active tasks.
  • Culled a pile of hard copy items on my desk.
  • Consulted with the Archdeacon on a variety of pastoral and administrative matters.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Looked over a draft Letter of Agreement between a vestry and a priest.
  • Conceived, hatched, and erected the infrastructure of a homily for this Sunday (behind the curve on this one) at All Saints, Morton (yes, on their feast of title).
  • Attended the midday Mass in the cathedral chapel, celebrating the major feast of Ss Simon & Jude.
  • Lunch at home–leftover Chinese.
  • Reviewed and processed documents and otherwise debriefed from last week’s Nashotah House board of trustees meeting.
  • Hand wrote notes of greeting to clergy and spouses with nodal events in November.
  • Took a 15 minute walk around the neighborhood.
  • Evaluated the details pertaining to a Class of 2011 bishops continuing education gathering this April … in Cuba. (The Bishop of Cuba, while not technically part of the Episcopal Church, is an honorary member of our class, having shared the College for Bishops program with us.) It’s a little on the spendy side, but, since I didn’t go to Taiwan last month, I made the decision to attend this one (solo, no Brenda, even though spouses are invited).
  • Responded to an email from a priest regarding an individual in the ordination discernment process.
  • Filled out a post-meeting evaluation for the annual assembly of the Illinois Conference of Churches that took place about three weeks ago. I had a few opinions.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
