Saturday

  • Met at 9:30 with Fr Tucker, coordinator for the liturgies at the clergy pre-Lenten retreat next month, just to get on the same page.
  • Attended the meeting of the Commission on Ministry at 10. We interviewed two nominees for ordination to the priesthood. One of them was born the year I was ordained, which makes me feel a little ... ancient.
  • The COM meeting ended at 1, and the Standing Committee convened in the same room with nary a break, with four of us involved in both groups. After some routine canonical matters (consenting to three episcopal elections), the group went into executive session to serve as the Bishop's Council of Advice. I was very grateful for their wise and supportive words about a couple of challenging situations.
  • The Standing Committee meeting ended at 3, after which I came home and ... had some lunch!
