Tuesday (St Nicholas)

  • Usual morning routine: task planning at home, Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Processed a longish batch of emails. This required reading several attachments and writing several replies. Consumed most of the morning.
  • Scheduled a lunch appointment with the Dean for tomorrow.
  • Took a phone call from one of our rectors regarding a pastoral matter.
  • Began to process the pile of hard copy items that has been accumulating over the last week or so.
  • Lunch at home (sliced deli turkey with Thai peanut sauce, sprouted grain bread with melted Parmesan cheese).
  • Continued and completed the document processing work.
  • Refined my homily for this weekend (St Andrew's, Paris and Trinity, Mattoon).
  • Prepared a couple of my "official portraits" for mailing to some former parishioners who were extraordinarily kind to me when I left Warsaw, IN last January.
  • Took a phone call from the Rector's Warden of St John's Chapel in Champaign with some questions regarding their search process.
  • Took a mini-power walk: Down First Street to South Grand, then back up Second to the office. Since I've been carrying a pedometer in my pocket, I've been getting a little OCD about racking up steps every day. On balance, this is a good thing.
  • Did a little bit of online Christmas shopping.
  • Wrote an email to a warden in one of our Eucharistic Communities regarding some administrative concerns.
  • Took a phone call from the Bishop's Warden of St Michael's, O'Fallon giving me an update on their search process.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
