Tuesday (St Boniface)

  • Morning Prayer at home, since a carpenter's truck was blocking my way out of the driveway, and the carpenter was in our attic prepping for the installation of a new range hood.
  • Took an incoming phone call from the Bishop's Warden of one of our mission congregations.
  • Processed a fairly long list of emails.
  • Incoming phone call from the Dean of Nashotah House, something that is bound to be happening with much more regularity in my new role as Chairman of the Board.
  • Discussed some non-urgent administrative issues with the Archdeacon and the Treasurer.
  • Made air travel arrangements for a trip to Bangkok in July, right after General Convention. I have been asked to join the Bishop of North Dakota in representing the Communion Partner bishops at a meeting of Global South Anglicans. (The cost of this trip is being underwritten by generous contributions from the CP bishops who are not traveling to tropical Thailand in July.)
  • Lunch at home--leftovers.
  • Tied up some loose ends generated by the Bangkok travel planning.
  • Took an incoming phone call from the rector of one of our parishes.
  • More loose ends to be tied up, this time from last Saturday's (very successful) Clergy Day.
  • Incoming phone call from a friend in another diocese who is also a deputy to General Convention, and who wanted to discuss issues relating to that impending event.
  • Worked on General Convention business--specifically, my role on the sub-committtee that will consider proposed changed to the liturgical calendar.
  • Began to lay track for a couple of teaching days I'm doing at St Thomas', Salem in August and September. 
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
  • After dinner, Brenda and I walked up to Washington Park to hear the third of a series of concerts on the massive carillon that stands there (and has since 1961). It was a beautiful evening and a beautiful program. We are so blessed to live amid such beauty.
