Thursday (Blessed Charles Grafton)


  • Up early for my exercise routine--30 minutes of resistance training and an aggressive 30 minutes on the treadmill.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Gave birth to a draft text of a homily for this Sunday at Trinity, Lincoln.
  • Took part in a quarterly conference call with my co-trustee for the Putnam Trust (a trust officer for Bank of America) and our investment manager (U.S. Trust). The beneficiaries of the Putnam Trust are St John the Baptist, Mt Carmel and the Chapel of St John the Divine in Champaign.
  • Lunch from La Bamba, eaten at home.
  • Responded to a handful of emails.
  • Took a call from a lay leader in one of our congregations.
  • Attended to some Nashotah House-related business.
  • Registered for a November conference of bishops of small dioceses. Partly as a result of what happened at last year's incarnation of that conference, the Diocese of Springfield's clergy health insurance premiums have been lowered nearly 15%. I can't guarantee that kind of return on the investment every year, but it seems worthwhile going again.
  • Did some scheduled maintenance on my personal organization systems (Evernote, Google Calendar).
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
