The online diary of the Right Reverend Daniel Martins, Bishop of Springfield (Episcopal Church)
Friday, August 9, 2013
Substantive phone conversation while still at home with the vice-chair of the Nashotah House board.
Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
Processed about a half dozen email messages ... which generated work that consumed the rest of my morning.
Lunch at home ... leftovers.
Substantive phone conversation with a consultant to the Nashotah House board of trustees.
Attended to some planning details in connection to a November visit to our companion diocese of Tabora (Tanzania).
Attended to a small matter related to our annual diocesan Synod in October.
Put the final touches on an Ad Clerum letter that will be electronically delivered on Monday.
Mentally reviewed where we stand with respect to the general mission strategy of the diocese. May some notes. Created some tasks. Planned some meetings. Sent some emails. I'm excited about where we are. At any given moment, it probably seems that our progress is slow. But it's solid. We are doing the right things.
