Tuesday (St Thomas Aquinas)

  • Personal meditation, intercessions, Morning Prayer, tea, breakfast, crossword, shower (aka the usual routine).
  • Reviewed the draft minutes of the November Diocesan Council meeting and made some suggestions to the secretary.
  • Responded in careful detail to an email regarding a pastoral-administrative matter.
  • Attended to a small bit of SKCM Mass business.
  • Reviewed the the psych report on one of our ordinands.
  • Got to work writing a rough draft of a homily for Epiphany VI (St Thomas, Glen Carbon).
  • Spoke by phone briefly with Canon Evans.
  • Lunched on leftovers.
  • Returned to, and completed, the Epiphany VI sermon draft.
  • Communicated by email with a colleague bishop over the pastoral-administrative matter referenced above.
  • A couple of weeks ago I asked for a volunteer to do a review for the Current of a book that had been sent to me. I got a volunteer, but, rather than dealing with packing the book and sending to him, it was easier to pay Amazon to just send him another copy.
  • Made a hotel reservation for an occasion that wasn’t on the list when the Administrator did my bookings for the year.
  • Reached out by email to my United Methodist counterpart bishop, acknowledging the recent news of an agreement for the UMC to split up over the marriage and sexuality controversy. I don’t even know what side of it he’s on, but I feel his pain.
  • Spoke by phone with an MLT member of one of our Eucharistic Communities, at his request.
  • More administrative work pertaining to the ordination process.
  • Attended to some preliminary Lambeth Conference travel arrangement details.
