Wednesday (St Richard of Chichester)

  • Usual weekday AM routine.
  • Attended by email to some developing plans among my Class of 2011 bishop colleagues for our annual continuing education get-together in 2020.
  • Scheduled an appointment with in individual in the ordination process to plan his theological formation program.
  • Wrestled laboriously with the exegetical notes on the readings for the Second Sunday of Easter, when I plan to preach at St Andrew’s, Edwardsville. Eventually wrangled a homiletical message statement out of the process, which I will develop into an outline next week.
  • Created a draft liturgy program for the Chrism Mass and sent it off to the cathedral office for them to work their magic.
  • Picked up some lunch from Pizza Hut.
  • Took a really substantial step forward in the project of drafting a pastoral teaching on sexuality and marriage. This has been on my radar for a very long time and I’m beginning to think it will actually get done, and be in circulation by sometime this summer.
  • Long walk on a lovely but occasionally too breezy afternoon, accompanied for part of it by our daughter-in-law and granddaughter.
  • Began the broad-stroke planning process for next November’s clergy conference.
  • Organized the project of figuring out how to proceed with diocesan communications in the wake of Paige’s departure.
  • Evening Prayer with Brenda.
