Tuesday

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Processed a pile of hard-copy items: two episcopal election consents, a credit card statement (which required a bit a sleuthing in order to properly annotate one of the charges), some Nashotah House business.
  • Reviewed and suggested a couple of tweaks on the draft of the bulletin for this Sunday at St Thomas', Glen Carbon.
  • Spent some productive time and energy on the ongoing work of making our new database system workable. Since the app is Windows-based and I run a Mac, today's efforts were focused on some software that emulates a Windows environment on an Apple machine. In short, I can run Windows 10 and any programs that operate in that environment.
  • Offered some pastoral care by telephone to a distraught layperson upset with some the goings-on in her Eucharistic Community.
  • Attended to a couple of other relatively minor issues by email.
  • Substantive phone conversation with the Dean of Nashotah House.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Corresponded with a colleague bishop (via Facebook message) over a matter of mutual interest.
  • Revised, edited, refined, and printed the working text for my homily this Sunday.
  • Read and digested the annual report from one of our clergy on his ministry.
  • Over time, as I downloaded email attachments, they collect on my desktop, eventually creating an inconvenient clutter. So, I have a recurring task to clean them up and file everything appropriately, which can be a rather time-consuming endeavor.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
