St Andrew's Day

  • Task planning at home.
  • Dropped shoes off at repair shop, took car for routine service; Brenda drove me in to the office.
  • Sorted and culled and otherwise processed a stack of snail mail on my desk.
  • Debriefed with the Administrator and the Archdeacon on sundry minutia.
  • Began hand-writing greetings to clergy and spouses with December birthdays and wedding or ordination anniversaries. (December is a big month for ordination anniversaries!) Some of them may even be partially legible. Hoping it's the thought that counts.
  • Sue took me to retrieve my car, then lunch from you-know-where, eaten at home.
  • Finished the milestone greetings begun before lunch.
  • Usual weekly scanning and e-cataloging of hard copy documents.
  • Left at 3:30 with the Archdeacon for Trinity Church, Mount Vernon, arriving just in time for a 6pm liturgy rehearsal for the ordination of David Peters to the transitional diaconate. David is an Army chaplain stationed at Fort Knox. I won't describe here the confluence of circumstances that put him on the ordination track in the Diocese of Springfield, but simply say that it is a privilege to be involved. We may not ever benefit directly from his ministerial gifts, but we have surely given something to the larger church and to the military community.
  • Home just before midnight.
