Tuesday (Martyrs of Japan)
- Usual early weekday AM routine.
- Spent an hour attending a conference call meeting of the trustees of the Society of King Charles the Martyr.
- Spent the rest of the morning (and part of the afternoon) taking my developed outline for an Epiphany VI sermon at St Thomas’, Glen Carbon and turning it into a rough draft text. Took a call from an Episcopal News Service reporter wanting to talk about–what else?–B012. Grabbed lunch from the nearby Subway.
- Got to work laying a foundation for a homily at the institution of Fr Joel Morsch as rector of St Andrew’s, Edwardsville on the 16th.
- Walked the three blocks to the Swedish Covenant medical complex for an initial assessment from a physical therapist. I have some back issues. She pronounced me “very tight and inflexible.” I resisted the temptation to tell her there are plenty of people who would have been willing to volunteer that information without her having to examine me! After the appointment, I took an unnecessarily long route home just to get some steps in.
