Wednesday (John Henry Hobart)

  • Processed some emails and planned tasks at home. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Worked on some of the liturgical details for an upcoming ordination.
  • Substantive telephone conversations with two members of the clergy of the diocese.
  • Reviewed the Office of Transition Ministries (OTM) Portfolio (the document formerly known as a Clergy Deployment Office Profile) of a potential candidate for the opening at St John the Divine, Champaign. Arranged for the customary telephone vetting conversation.
  • Responded to an email from a priest regarding an upcoming parish visit.
  • Lunch from China 1, eaten at home.
  • Read, studied, prayed over and mulled the scripture readings for the scheduled October 4 ordination of Bruce DeGooyer to the priesthood, in preparation for being the preacher as well as the presider on that occasion. Emerged from the process with a useful homiletical sense of direction.
  • Engaged in the same process the readings for the lesser feast of Henry Martyn, Priest & Missionary, which will be the liturgical occasion celebrated at the annual Synod Mass on October 19. Once again, the result was a useful homiletical sense of direction.
  • Reviewed the draft liturgy booklet for the institution of Fr Dick Swan as Rector of St John's, Decatur on the Feast of St Michael & All Angels.
  • Substantive telephone conversation with two lay leaders of one of our parishes.
  • Spend about half and hour adding some content to the website. (See here for the fruit of my labor.)
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
