Tuesday (10th Day of Christmas)

  • Dropped off our eldest child, Sarah, at the Amtrak station on my way into the office this morning, after a wonderful 2+ day visit. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Revised, edited, refined, and printed my homily for this Sunday (Trinity, Jacksonville).
  • Read and pondered an email from a layperson of the diocese over an emerging concern.
  • Responded by email to another layperson over some personal concerns.
  • Conferred with the Archdeacon for a bit on the status of one of our Eucharistic Communities.
  • Spoke by phone with one of our rectors concerning a pastoral issue.
  • Reviewed a proposed itinerary for a February visit to Peru and gave it a thumbs up.
  • Took care of a fairly mundane (but ultimately important) administrative chore (appointing somebody to a position similar to the one they held under the previous canons but which was eliminated in the recent revision).
  • Met with Dean Hook from across the alley to do a “post-mortem” on the Christmas liturgies and look ahead toward Holy Week.
  • Lunch from Taco Gringo, eaten at home.
  • Devoted the bulk of my afternoon to further revision and refinement of the major teaching document on ministry that I’ve been working on. I believe it’s about as ready for prime time as it’s going to get, but I’m nonetheless going to sit on it for about a week before going public.
  • Made a similar post-canonical-change appointment to the one I made in the morning.
  • Attended to a couple of more small but fairly important administrative tasks.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
