Friday

  • Morning Prayer in the office (somebody was cleaning in the church).
  • Brought my homily for Proper 19 (September 13 in Decatur) from "rough notes" to "rough draft" status.
  • Dealt with a small administrative task pertaining to lay ministry licensing.
  • Devoted the rest of the morning to producing an article for the next issue of the Current. Dealt with technological gremlins along the way; I was constantly getting the Mac revolving beachball of interminable delay (I think the Windows version is an hourglass that never empties, right?).
  • Lunch from La Bamba, eaten at home.
  • Back into tech hell. On advice of the Facebook hivemind, I closed out all applications I wasn't actually using at the moment, shut the machine completely off, and retired to the cathedral to pray the Luminous Mysteries of the rosary. (Ok, that last part didn't come from the hivemind.) When I returned and restarted, my Mac was in a much better mood. We'll see how long it lasts.
  • Spent some time devising a strategy for the progress a potential ordinand whom we are trying to "adopt" from another diocese.
  • Thought through and plotted some tasks relative to a sort of "program and budget summit" I would like to convene in January. We've been on autopilot in this area for too long, and need to disturb the systemic homeostasis.
  • Spent the rest of the afternoon blowing through small tasks, mostly emails that have been in the reply queue.
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
