The morning and part of the afternoon were consumed by a trip up to Nashotah House to take “delivery” on some vestments that I bought for diocesan use several months ago (they’re no longer considered fashionable by Nashotah, but I love them!), but never received because of the onset of the pandemic. Now they’re in my car for a trip to Springfield tomorrow. The rest of the day, including well into the evening, with a break for dinner, was devoted to my next-due post on the Covenant blog, in which I try to interpret and put into some context the veery unsettling news of the resignation of the Bishop of Albany. Sorting this out is of more than marginal significance for a diocese like Springfield.
