  • Indulged myself a leisurely morning: read the paper, helped Brenda get ready for her trip to Chicago, began laundry, updated the software on my iPad, examined and processed yet another batch of photos from the consecration, took a brisk and long walk (about four miles in a little under and hour).
  • Finished refining sermon for tomorrow, and worked a bit on next week's as well. Went by the office to retrieve the tools of my new trade.
  • Drove down to O'Fallon and enjoyed the entertaining hospitality of Jack Moelmann (Mission Warden at St Michael's), who is a theater organ aficionado extraordinaire, and has a Rube Goldberg-like installation--pipes, electronics, and acoustic tuned percussion--taking up his entire basement. And he can really play. We were joined later by Bishop's Warden Ann Wilt and her husband Nels, who provided me with some very valuable background information on the history of St Michael's (our newest church plant and the largest mission congregation of the diocese) and what its current challenges are.
