Tuesday (O Radix Jesse)

  • Task planning over breakfast. Took a little extra time at home to prepare staff Christmas gifts for delivery.
  • Brief consultation with the Archdeacon on last week’s “black swan” matter.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Attended to some administrative details of a matter related to a couple of our clergy.
  • Stepped out for a meeting with my personal financial advisor (who is conveniently only a block away).
  • Began deconstructing and old homily for Advent IV toward the end of reconstructing it for use this Sunday at St Luke’s, Springfield.
  • Pulled pork lunch from HyVee, eaten at home.
  • Met with the Dean in preparation for our mutual participation in the two Christmas Eve Masses at the cathedral.
  • Took a phone call from one of our clergy.
  • Got back to that sermon prep task I’d started before lunch.
  • Conferred with the Archdeacon again, this time on another matter.
  • Conferred by email with the rector of a Eucharistic Community that I will be visiting in early January.
  • Followed up with a bit of Forward Movement board-related business.
  • Rummaged through old Christmas homilies (this is the 29th Christmas Eve on which it has been my joy to preach), and found one that I can re-purpose for use at Springfield Cathedral this year.
  • Responded to a request from a worthy cause for a contribution from my discretionary fund.
  • Read and responded to an Ember Day letter from one of our postulants.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
