Wednesday (First Book of Common Prayer)


  • Morning Prayer in the office. Devotions before the Blessed Sacrament in the cathedral. 
  • Dealt with an administrative issue pertaining to General Convention. 
  • Spoke at some length by phone with a potential candidate for a clergy vacancy in the diocese. 
  • Reviewed and replied to an email pertaining to the details of one of my upcoming visitations. 
  • Made preparations to preside and preach at the cathedral midday liturgy. 
  •  Took some small steps, via email, toward nailing down the details of our planned July visit to the Diocese of Peru. 
  • Began working on turning some broad stroke notes for my next Covenant blog deadline to a postable product. 
  • Celebrated and preached the 12:15 Mass, keeping the lesser commemoration of the First Book of Common Prayer. The appointed first reading ends with Acts 2:42: "And they continued steadfast in the teaching and fellowship of the apostles, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers." Indeed, the Prayer Book provides a healthy context and medium for doing just that. 
  • Lunch from Taco Gringo, eaten at home. 
  • Spent most of the rest of the afternoon on the aforementioned Covenant post. I was frustrated, but I shouldn't have been. I should have known it would take that long, and not included so many other things on today's task list. Writing takes however long it takes. 
  • I did squeeze out a couple of Nashotah-related emails before heading to ... 
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
