Ascension

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Sent a gift from my Discretionary Fund via Western Union to help with a mini-sabbatical for the Bishop of Tabora.
  • Devoted another chunk of planning time to a clergy conference in November.
  • Arranged a date and time for a first meeting with a potential ordinand.
  • Wrote an email to the Treasurer regarding a financial issue in one of our parishes.
  • Extended and substantive phone conversation over some issues related to the ordination process.
  • Lunch from McD's, eaten at home.
  • (while working from home for the afternoon) Gave birth to a message statement for the sermon I will deliver one the last visitation before my sabbatical, the first weekend in June (a trifecta: Robinson, Albion, Mt Carmel).
  • Performed some fairly minor surgery on a Pentecost sermon from a prior year, rehabilitated for this year at St George's, Belleville.
  • Worked on some musical issues pertaining to a scheduled ordination later this month.
  • Left with Brenda at 2:45 for points south.
  • Arrived at 5pm at the Salem home of Fr David and Elizabeth Baumann. Enjoyed a lovely dinner with them and their baby daughter before heading over to St Thomas' for the Eastern Deanery celebration of Ascension. I presided and preached, using some the liturgical materials designed for our Novena for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit between Ascension and Pentecost. Home just past 10.
