Friday (St Iranaeus)
Usual AM routine; Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
Participated in an hour-long conference call with the budget subcommittee of the Executive Committee of the Nashotah House Board of Trustees.
Wrote and email and took an incoming phone call in connection with the same subject matter as the conference call.
Met with a young man who is a relatively recently-ordained pastor of a Baptist church, but who believes himself to actually be an Anglican about what it would take for him to become an ordained Anglican.
Lunch at home.
Plotted the basic homiletical moves and further developed the emerging sermon for Proper 14 (August 11 in Mt Carmel).
Took another phone call and traded some more emails about the Nashotah House business.
Created a new page on the diocesan website for our companion dioceses.
Prayed the Luminous Mysteries of the rosary.
Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
Planned and plotted individual tasks in connection with preparing for Synod in October.
