First things first: Rose, lit coals in the Big Green Egg, prepared a brisket for smoking, and got it on the grill.
Tea, breakfast, processing email, cruising Facebook. This involved sharing an article of mine that appeared on the Covenant blog today.
Composed and sent an Ad Clerum, letter to the the clergy (actually, just Rectors, Vicars, and Priest-in-Charge, since it had to do with some practical liturgical matters).
Did some investigative planning for the drive I plan to take tomorrow to Lexington, KY for a meeting of the board of the the Living Church Foundation. Checked into my hotel room online.
Showered, dressed, and did my physical therapy exercises. My back is a bit of a mess since I tackled a household project on Sunday afternoon that required me to twist and contort myself inordinately. I hope the exercises, a more circumspect version of twisting and contorting, help.
Organized tasks for what’s left of the day.
Went on a health-related shopping errand with/for Brenda. Caught some lunch while we were out.
Did the finish work (refine, edit, format, print, schedule for posting) on my homily for this Sunday (St John’s, Decatur).
Took a jackhammer and some QuikCrete to a two-decades old sermon text for Easter VI in order to retrofit it for use this year at St John’s, Albion.
Worked for about 45 minutes on the continuing project of imposing order on the chaos of my basement.
Evening Prayer with Brenda.
Enjoyed the brisket I’d been tending off-and-on all day, along with the cornbread that came into being in about 30 minutes.
