Wednesday (John Mason Neale)

  • Morning Prayer fell through the cracks today, as I was immediately engulfed upon arrival at the office by a chain of phone calls, both incoming and outgoing, that lasted until nearly 11:30. All were with either clergy or wardens in the diocese, pertaining to various emerging issues in various parishes.
  • Refined and printed the working notes of my sermon for this Sunday (St John the Baptist, Mt Carmel).
  • Lunch from China 1, eaten at home.
  • Plotted a course toward being prepared for my guest preaching gig in the Diocese of Tennessee on September 22, when the House of Bishops will be meeting in Nashville.
  • Took care of various bits of administrivia (for example, printing and signing forms giving consent for bishops in other dioceses to retire--yes, my life is that exciting!).
  • Wrote out birthday and anniversary greetings to clergy and spouses for the rest of August . 
  • Scanned and otherwise processed the pile of hard copy detritus that was in my physical inbox. 
  • Evening Prayer (memorized form) in the car on the way home, as it was already well past 6.
