  • Task planning at home. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Consulted with the Archdeacon on sundry administrative and pastoral matters.
  • Took a phone call from Fr Swan regarding Hale Deanery matters.
  • Consulted with Treasurer Jim Donkin concerning the re-structuring of a loan at St Michael's, O'Fallon.
  • Arranged for the licensing of Fr Ralph McMichael to serve as Interim Vicar (half-time) at St Michael's, O'Fallon.
  • Processed the items that had accumulated on my desk since last Friday, and processed a load of emails.
  • Worked on my sermon for this Sunday (Palm Sunday) at St Matthew's, Bloomington. Communicated with Fr Halt regarding some of the details of the liturgy.
  • Walked (on a beautiful spring day) to an Italian eatery downtown for a meatball sandwich, then stopped to purchase some 99% cacao chocolate bars. They're a specialized taste. Not sweet in the least, but not bitter either. And very smooth. (Made by Lindt.)
  • Met with Kathy Moore, our diocesan coordinator for youth ministry about ... you guessed it ... youth ministry issues.
  • Processed more emails and digested some newly-arrived correspondence regarding a parish where the waters are troubled.
  • Worked on the Lenten series presentation I am scheduled to give at St George's, Belleville on Thursday night. Topic: Living Into Our Messianic Hope. (The whole series has been on the concept of messiah.)
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral. 
  • Drove to Lincoln (about 35 miles up I-55) to meet with the Vestry and Search Committee of Trinity Church. I got to know them a bit, connected with their process, laid out their options, and then left them to discuss amongst themselves. I look forward to helping them find the right match.
  • Got home around 9, got a bite to eat, watched a little TV (an episode of the new Showtime historical drama The Borgias) and then dashed of a blog post about Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and liturgy in general.
