- From the long list of way more things to do than I will have time for this week, I chose 15. By day’s end, ten were done.
- Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
- Debriefed a bit with the Archdeacon and the Administrator on my trip to Cuba.
- Refined, edited, and submitted my next post for the Covenant blog. Look for it to appear a couple of weeks from now.
- Prepared a draft agenda for the regular spring meeting of the Nashotah House Board of Trustees next month. Submitted it to the Secretary for his input.
- Attended to some administrative issues pertaining to setting the stage of our transitional deacon to the priesthood in a timely manner.
- Tweaked, refined, and printed my homily for this Sunday (St John the Divine, Champaign).
- Lunch from McD’s, eaten at home.
- Headed to the Prairie Heart Institute for a scheduled stress test. (I could have told them there’s plenty of stress in my life, right?!) Somehow I didn’t get the message that the procedure (actually, a complex of procedures) would require three hours of my time. That information, of course, increased my stress level.
- Left around 4:30 and headed back to the office, stopping by the bank on my way to make a deposit.
- Tied up the loose ends on this Sunday’s homily–making the necessary moves for the text to appear in cyberspace at the scheduled start time of the last liturgy at which it will be delivered (standard procedure).
- Took care of a small tidbit of Nashotah business via email.
- Contemporized the illustrations and otherwise revised a homily for Easter IV delivered some years ago, now repurposed for use at Trinity, Yazoo City, MS, one of my DEPO parishes.
- Left the office around 6:00, praying the evening office (short memorized form) in my car on the way home.
