Friday (O Clavis David)

  • Delayed by some staff banter when I arrived at the office, but eventually Morning Prayer was in the cathedral.
  • Fr Sean Ferrell left his overcoat in my car as we parted ways at the end of our field trip yesterday, so I took it over to the downtown Post Office, found an appropriate box, and sent it off with a guarantee of next day delivery.
  • Spent the rest of the morning responding in various ways to several emails that arrived yesterday.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Worked some more on my sermon for the Second Sunday after the Epiphany (Christ Church, Springfield), arriving at an essential message statement.
  • Made a scheduled quarterly review of our progress in the implementation of our diocesan mission strategy. Created several new actions as a result.
  • Made travel arrangements (air, hotel, car rental) for my DEPO visit to the Church of the Holy Communion in Charleston, SC on the first weekend in February.
  • Read an article sent by one of our clergy that has been in the queue for several weeks.
  • Took care of a pastoral/administrative task that has also been in the queue for several weeks.
  • Made an initial pass over the readings in preparation for preaching on the feast of the Conversion of St Paul, which the cathedral parish will be observing as its patronal feast day on last Sunday in January.
  • Having noticed an announcement on Facebook of a new recording of some seasonal music from All Saints Margaret Street, I downloaded an listened to several Advent items. Spending time with music is a form of prayer for me.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
