Tuesday (Martyrs of Lyons)

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Listened to a voicemail left yesterday and contacted the caller.
  • Responded via email to an emerging pastoral issue.
  • Attended to a small chore (that has been in the chute for several weeks and had become a nuisance) pertaining to the Illinois Conference of Churches.
  • Took care of a couple of relatively small but important chores, one related to General Convention and one to Nashotah House.
  • Took a phone call from one of our rectors.
  • Fleshed out and brought almost to maturity the working outlines for the teaching I’m doing next week–on prayer–at the (first annual Diocese of Springfield) St Michael’s Youth Conference.
  • Lunch from HyVee, eaten at home.
  • Worked, at different stages of gestation, on three different upcoming sermons: Proper 6 (June 14 in Danville), Proper 7 (June 21 in Rantoul), and Proper 19 (September 13 in Decatur).
  • What’s the one question you would like to as the four candidates for Presiding Bishop? I was asked to use Survey Monkey to do just that. My question was this: What sacrifice of our perceptions or priorities are you prepared to ask our church to make for the sake of repairing relations with the Anglican provinces that fall under the label ‘Global South’?”
  • Spent some time surfing the web for concrete information about the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage, which I am considering for the sabbatical I am planning on taking next year. It’s time to start laying plans.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
