Friday

  • Usual morning routine; MP in the cathedral.
  • Processed a small batch of snail mail that had arrived on my desk.
  • Wrote an email to a colleague bishop on a matter of mutual concern.
  • Prepared the readings and made mental notes for a homily at this evening's Eucharist with those gathered for a Youth Department-sponsored lock-in at the cathedral.
  • Worked on planning worship for next month's clergy pre-Lenten retreat.
  • Lunch at home--leftovers.
  • Continued and completed my worship planning project.
  • Made the final physical preparations for the Eucharist (which we celebrated in the Great Hall, so there was nothing routine about it). It involved several trips across the alley and back--as well as a drive home to retrieve some communion bread that Brenda had just baked for us. 
  • Spoke by phone at some length with a sales representative for one of the church database service companies we have begun conversations with.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
  • Answered an Ember Day letter from one of our postulants.
  • Wrote an email to a priest who has indicated an interest in the interim position at St Andrew's, Carbondale.
  • Spent about the next 90 minutes at the lock-in--talking the group through what we were going to do, and then doing it. It was an informal but symbolically and spiritually rich "Rite 3" celebration that I think was well-received.
