Thursday (St John of Damascus)

  • Customary Thursday morning quality time with the Bowflex and the treadmill. Running slower than usual, so it was nearly 10 before I made it into the office.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Responded to a couple of late-arriving emails.
  • Met with an aspiring postulant for Holy Orders, who has traverses an exotic and unlikely path to get to where he sat in my office today.
  • I had to scrounge, but I finally located an electronic file for a diaconal ordination program that I promised to the office staff at Emmanuel, Champaign so they can get started on preparing for the ordination of Cameron Nations, now less than a month away.
  • Shot off a couple of administrivial emails.
  • Attended the midday Mass in the cathedral, just because John of Damascus is one of my faces.
  • Lunch at home.
  • Made a final tabulation of the amount we've collected toward helping with rebuilding expenses after the dormitory fire at St Peter's School in Tabora (Tanzania), then hoofed it down to Illinois National Bank to arrange for a wire transfer.
  • Did a fairly minor bit a sleuthing in connection with a Nashotah House concern.
  • Drafted and sent to Sue for promulgation a memo to the clergy-in-charge of mission congregations in the diocese on an administrative concern where we seek greater uniformity of practice.
  • Conceived and hatched a homily for Christmas Eve (at St Paul's Cathedral). It is now officially in gestation.
  • Laid out the broad strokes of an article for the Covenant blog that is due the week after next.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
