- Usual start to a working weekday.
- But meat on the bones of my developed outline of a homily for Proper 21, turning it into a rough draft that can yet be perfected for use at St Stephen’s, Harrisburg on the 29th.
- Devoted the rest of the morning to working with my daughter and son and daughter-in-law in a project none of us anticipated or enjoyed: moving stuff out of the basement and stowing in temporarily in the garage so the rat exterminators we have engaged will have access to the space for cleaning and disinfecting. A rat infestation pretty much constitutes a near-emergency, I guess,
- Lunched quickly on leftovers.
- Headed to an appointment with my primary care doctor, following-up on the seven hours I spent in the ER Sunday nights into Monday morning with a kidney stone attack. I’m grateful to have been out of pain since I was released.
- Dealt with issues pertaining to next month’s annual synod, the Department of Mission, and clergy deployment (which is generally on the front burner now with as many vacancies as we have).
- Took a 3,000-step walk with Brenda.
- Evening Prayer in our domestic chapel.
