Friday

  •  Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Two-hour conference call with a working group of the Nashotah House board of trustees. We are a bit "under the gun" as regards some work that needs to be accomplished in order to retain our accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools. It is challenging, but we are making excellent progress. While these duties do indeed consume a noticeable portion of my time, when it all shakes out, I believe there is a net benefit to the diocese that I attempt to serve. It's not always quantifiable, but it's there.
  • The hour between the conference call and lunch was devoted to a series of consequent "house cleaning" tasks--emails, phone calls ... and just trying to recover some of the energy expended in the conversation.
  • Lunch from McD's, eaten at home. (Yep, Chicken McNuggets with hot mustard sauce. Judge me if you must.)
  • Read, digested, and responded to a document related to an individual in the ordination process.
  • Mentally plotted a strategy for occasions when I might be required to offer an extemporaneous homily while visiting the Diocese of Tabora in November.
  • Reviewed by October Sunday visitation schedule and created various preparation-related tasks and reminders.
  • Cleared out my physical inbox: lots of scanning, tossing, and creating of more tasks.
  • Ignatian-style meditation on the gospel reading for Evening Prayer--a passage from the Passion according to St Mark.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
