The big rocks:
- Attended a meeting of the diocesan Department of Finance, to work through some outstanding issues related to the draft 2021 operating budget that will be proposed to Council on the 15th.
- Prayed over, conceived, and hatched a homily for the ordination of Chris Simpson to the priesthood, set for September 14, the very day I get back into the saddle after vacation.
- Reached out to two potential guest presenters at what will be the virtual surrogate for the usual fall clergy conference. (I’ve already heard back from one of them–affirmatively).
- Attended to the usual running stream of emails, texts, and phone calls.
