St Mary the Virgin

  • Customary Thursday early morning weight and treadmill routine.
  • On the phone to a hotel and an airline about an upcoming trip while I chow down on my breakfast bacon (dismaying the dog by not thinking to share any with her).
  • Morning Prayer (memorized short form) in the car driving to the office.
  • Processed a batch of emails.
  • Scanned and otherwise disposed of the hard copy items in my physical inbox.
  • Kept a phone date with my co-trustee for the Putnam Trust, along with the trust’s investment advisor. This was a routine regular review of investment strategy. The Putnam Trust generates significant income for two of our parishes.
  • Began developing a draft for my sermon at Trinity, Mattoon on August 25.
  • Attended Mass in the cathedral chapel for today’s feast day–a sung liturgy, no less, celebrated by Fr Gus Franklin.
  • Lunch from McD’s, eaten at home.
  • Completed the above-referenced work on homily for Proper 16.
  • Worked on the agenda for the annual Synod in October.
  • Began to lay out the broad strokes my address at that same Synod.
  • Worked on some clergy deployment issues.
  • Wrote a substantive email to the Nashotah House board summarizing what the Executive Committee accomplished during our Texas meeting Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
