Ascension

  • Up on the early side for time on the Bowflex and treadmill.
  • Morning Prayer began in the cathedral and concluded in my office, owing to the arrival of a school field trip.
  • Discussed a sensitive administrative issue at some length with the Archdeacon.
  • Did exegetical research on the gospel for the feast of the Nativity of St John the Baptist, on which I will be preaching at the parish of that name in Mount Carmel. Do you know how many variations of the name John there are, and in how many languages? It's astonishing.
  • Lunch at home.
  • Met with the initial three members of the newly-formed Spiritual Vitality Team of the Department of General Mission Strategy. Exciting beyond words to see the mission strategy vision take shape.
  • Conferred with Dean Brodie over some concerns relating to the cathedral parish.
  • Worked on preparations for the June 2 clergy day.
  • Left around 5 for Pekin to celebrate Ascension with the good people of St Paul's, along with All Saints, Morton. Home around 10.
