Thursday

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Conferred with the Archdeacon on some of the details of an upcoming ordination.
  • Conferred with the administrator on some ... well, administrative issues.
  • Hunted for some photos to send to the author of the "interview" article that I worked on yesterday. This was a dangerous endeavor, as it was easy to get distracted looking at pictures that were not germane to my mission.
  • Developed my homiletical message statement for Easter VII (Harrisburg and West Frankfort) into an outline from which I can create a draft the next time I work on it.
  • Lunch from TG, eaten at home.
  • Processed a stack of emails.
  • Took a prayerful first pass at the readings for Proper 5, in preparation for preaching on them at a weekend trifecta--Robinson, Albion, and Mt Carmel--on the first weekend in June.
  • Continued working on a pastoral guide to ministry--lay and ordained. This started out as a policy statement on the diaconate, but in the process of vetting it, it has seemed good to contextualize it but writing about presbyteral, episcopal, and lay ministry as well.
  • Prayed the evening office in the cathedral, but about an hour earlier than usual, owing to ...
  • ... an appointment with a layperson--a first interview to discuss discernment for ordination to the priesthood.
