  • Task planning and Morning Prayer at home.
  • Debriefed with the Archdeacon on some recent developments.
  • Processed several items in my email inbox.
  • Discussed an emerging administrative/financial/pastoral issue (yes, it was all three) with the Archdeacon and Treasurer in person, and one other individual by phone.
  • Walked down to the main branch of the Illinois National Bank to sign some documents in the presence of a notary relative to the sale of some property adjacent to one of our churches. (Logged about 3500 steps on my new pedometer doing so--toward a recommended daily total of 10,000.)
  • Began to process yet another pile of snail mail that had arrived since last Friday.
  • Drove down to Subway to pick up a sandwich for lunch and bring it back to the office to eat.
  • Continued my processing-scanning project.
  • Spoke by phone with a priest of the diocese over sundry matters.
  • Responded in writing to a request from a priest from outside the diocese to preside at a wedding within the bounds of the diocese.
  • Gave my consent for the bishop-elect of Nebraska to be consecrated and for the Bishop of Atlanta to resign.
  • Put meat on the bones of my sermon for this Sunday at St Mark's, West Frankfort.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
