  • Task planning and Morning Prayer at home.
  • Caught up with the Archdeacon about developments since last we met; this had largely to do with one of our parishes in transition. Made a couple of phone calls related to this.
  • Left a phone message with the office of Archbishop John Holder in Barbados. We have long had a companion relationship with that diocese, and I have been remiss in letting this much time go by without making contact.
  • Hand wrote notes to all the clergy and clergy spouses with milestone events (birthdays, anniversaries of wedding and ordination) in October. This took the rest of my morning.
  • Lunch at home.
  • Did some deeper exegetical study of one of the readings for the Synod liturgy; my sermon for that occasion seems to be coalescing around that one reading.
  • Refined and prepped my sermon for this coming Sunday (St Peter's, Chesterfield and St Paul's, Carlinville).
  • Processed (via scanner) the hard copy items that have accumulated since before my trip to Quito.
  • Got down to some serious meditation and study in preparation for the "clergy day" addresses I will be giving as part of my preaching mission at the Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota at the end of October/beginning of November.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
