Thursday (St Nicholas)
This was "one of those days." There's an emerging pastoral issue, with administrative implications, in one of our parishes that consumed most of my attention, most of it on the telephone. There was also another extended pastoral care telephone conversation with a member of another congregation. And the emails just kept streaming in. I did manage to get some work done on my sermon for Advent III (St Paul's, Carlinville) and write an Ad Clerum letter to the clergy. On days like this, I remind myself that people are not interruptions to my work; people are my work.
