Wednesday (St Teresa of Avila)

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Prepared for my regular Wednesday midday Mass duty.
  • Refined and printed my homily for Saturday’s institution of the Revd Beth Maynard as rector of Emmanuel, Champaign.
  • Spoke by phone with a consultant to the Nashotah House board of trustees.
  • Attended the regular monthly meeting a clergy associated with the cathedral. We mostly just “waste time,” but I mean that in a good way. Simply maintaining relationships bears fruit in the long term.
  • Celebrated and preached the Mass for the lesser feast of St Teresa of Avila.
  • Lunch at home; leftovers.
  • Kept a 2pm dental hygiene appointment.
  • Back at the office … returned a couple of phone calls.
  • Wrote (and printed and signed and scanned and attached to an email) a letter licensing a lay person as a Pastoral Leader under the canons, to take care of one of our parishes in transition.
  • Dashed off a hand-written note to Bishop Parsons, who broke his ankle last week, after twice unsuccessfully trying to reach him by phone,
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Grabbed some dinner from Subway, bringing it back to my office to consume.
  • Worked on master sermon planning for the period from the beginning of Advent until the beginning of Lent. Did not complete this task, so it will have to continue tomorrow.
  • Attended the regular October meeting of the cathedral chapter (on which I have seat, voice, and vote).
