Thursday (Corpus Christi)

  • Usual Thursday routine--up early for workout, in to the office just a bit later than usual. (The workout takes an hour.)
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Processed a batch of emails, a couple of them requiring some careful wordsmithing in response, which is time-consuming.
  • Fleshed out the framework, and added some detail, on a homily for the Nativity of St John the Baptist (June 24 in Mt Carmel, at the Church of St John the Baptist).
  • Lunch from China 1, eaten at home.
  • Worked on the website for about 20 minutes.
  • Drafted a resolution for General Convention which, if submitted an passed, would authorize parishes that wish to do so to use the lectionary for Sundays and Holy Days as it was originally printed in the 1979 Prayer Book (rather than the Revised Common Lectionary, which supplanted in in 2010). Needing one more bishop to sign on before I can submit it.
  • Wrote a promised article for the Alton Parish newsletter providing some basic information about General Convention--what it is, how it works, and what the key issues are this year. Although I wrote it for Alton, they don't get an exclusive, so if you'd like it for your own newsletter, just ask.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
  • Brenda and I have been really enjoying the carillon festival in Washington Park (which we can walk to) during the beautiful evenings we've had this week.
