Quality time on the treadmill before heading into the office. I’ve noticed that all the walking I did while in England had a salubrious effect on my blood sugar, so I’m making an effort to ramp up the exercise.
Angelus and Visitation in the cathedral (part of my usual morning devotional routine, though I seldom mention it here), but Morning Prayer in the office because of the heat in the church.
Worked on revising and reconditioning a prior year’s homily for Proper 10 (13 July at Redeemer, Cairo). Yes, I do this from time to time. And I’m not embarrassed.
Dealt with some Nashotah-related business.
Crafted a word of greeting, and sent it via email, to the upcoming synod of the Diocese of Tabora, one of our companion relationship partners.
Lunch from Hy-Vee, eaten at home.
Walked down to Illinois National Bank to wire some funds that we have been holding for Tabora.
Dealt with two important and long-delayed tasks pertaining to our mission strategy implementation.
Processed a handful of emails.
Evening Prayer in the office; Angelus in the cathedral.
