Wednesday (O Oriens)

  • Delayed start getting out of the house, as my brawn was required to bring the Christmas tree we bought Sunday night from the garage into the house and get it set up. We're expecting Christmas house guests to start arriving tomorrow night, so the clock is ticking on getting the house ready.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Substantive phone conversation (by appointment) with Deacon Bruce DeGooyer, whose professional background in organizational development will be an important resource in the execution of our emerging diocesan vision for mission.
  • Conceived, hatched, and rough-plotted a homily for the eve of Epiphany, to be delivered at St John's, Decatur.
  • Lunch at home.
  • Spent a good while updating the customary for visitations of the Bishop to Eucharistic Communities. Having now completed my first circuit of visitations, I've learned a few things, so it was time to stabilize and codify those learnings.
  • Took a mental and physical health break in the form of a brisk walk--first three or four blocks south of the office on Second, then as far east as Seventh and as far north as Adams, before winding my way back. 
  • Wrote a final Ad Clerum letter to the clergy for this calendar year.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
