Wednesday (Ss Peter & Paul)

  • Out of the house just beforre 7am for 2.5 miles of hard walking.
  • Read the paper over tea. Processed emails, planned tasks
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Spent the rest of the morning hand-writing cards to clergy and spouses with June birthdays and anniversaries.
  • Met with a representative of Church Insurance who had business with the cathedral and wanted to meet me. (The diocese has its property & casualty coverage with a local broker.)
  • Navigated the byzantine maze of mouse clicks leading to airline and hotel reservations for the September House of Bishops meeting in ... wait for it ... Quito, Ecuador. Why are we meeting there? Anybody's guess. I just go where I'm told. 
  • Felt like I needed a vacation just after accomplishing that task. Fortunetely, it was by then time to head home, load up the back of my car with vestments, grab Brenda, and head south to Carlinville, where we duly ordained John Henry to the priesthood, and instituted him as rector of St Paul's Church. Wonderful garden reception following the liturgy. Got home around 10.
