Up and out of my Effingham hotel at 7:30 for the short drive to St Lawrence’s Church in advance of their regular 8am Eucharist. Presided and preached for a congregation of nine: the six regulars, plus two family members visiting from out of town, and YFNB. The Word of God was duly preached and the Blessed Sacrament duly administered. After a nice post-liturgical social time, I was back on the road at 9:30 and home at 11:30.
Devoted most of my afternoon to writing an article for the next edition of the Springfield Current, now under new editorship. As a token of the new order of things, however, that article is already available on this very website (currently appearing on the Home page right under the “sticky” Welcome).
