Tuesday (St Cyprian)

  • Usual routine at home, Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Processed a handful of pending email messages.
  • Took care of a couple of brief chores emanating from this past weekend's Department of General Mission Strategy retreat.
  • First meeting with a potential nominee for Holy Orders.
  • Scanned or otherwise processed accumulated hard copy items.
  • Talked by phone with a priest of the diocese who is home recovering from a "cardiac incident" last week.
  • Ran a personal errand on the north side of town, and picked up some lunch from a different Taco Gringo than my usual one!
  • Met with a priest of the diocese who is currently non-parochial regarding the future shape of his ministry.
  • Spoke by phone with a rector regarding various goings-on the in the congregations he takes care of.
  • Ran an errand connected to tomorrow's travel plans, and arrived home around 4:00.
  • Working at home, conceived a sermon for my visit to Trinity, Lincoln the second Sunday in October.
  • Mapped out the broad strokes of my address at next month's regular annual synod of the diocese.
  • Evening Prayer at home.
  • Packed bags for tomorrow's flights to Quito, Ecuador for the regular fall meeting of the House of Bishops. (There are two dioceses of the Episcopal Church in Ecuador, including Ecuador Central, our host.)
SPECIAL: Yesterday I posted on my "real" blog some substantive thoughts about some missional challenges we face as a diocese. You may want to have a look if you haven't seen it already.
