Wednesday (St Paulinus of York)

  • Morning Prayer in my living room. (The future chapel/oratory is still a staging area for other projects).
  • Did some remedial reconfiguring of my dining room computer desk/workspace area.
  • Spoke by phone with a priest of the diocese over an emerging issue.
  • Emailed the president of the Standing Committee over the same emerging issue.
  • Spent the rest of the morning, and part of the afternoon on the three-or-four-times-a-year task of master sermon planning–in this case, from Advent Sunday through the Last Sunday after the Epiphany. This involves looking over material from prior years and deciding which can be shined up for reuse and which occasions demand something entirely fresh, and then accordingly assigning various tasks to various dates. This is time-consuming, but necessary.
  • Stepped out to Subway (about 2.5 blocks away) for a lunchtime sandwich.
  • Took a long and brisk walk on what is probably the last decently warm day of the season. The number of available routes boggles the mind.
  • Conceived and hatched a homily for the synod Eucharist, keeping the lesser feast of Henry Martyn.
  • Evening Prayer in the temporarily usual place.
