  • Pretty routine start to the workday. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Substantive (incoming) phone conversation with one of our parish clergy.
  • Substantive conversation-in-passing with the cathedral dean.
  • Substantive phone conversation (incoming) with a colleague bishop.
  • Refined, edited, printed, and scheduled for posting my homily for this Sunday (St George's, Belleville).
  • Conceived and hatched a post for the Covenant blog that is due next week. It still needs some significant development, but the skeleton is there.
  • Lunch from Taco Gringo, eaten at home.
  • Kept an appointment with a doctor to follow up on my kidney stone drama from about three weeks ago. Ran a personal errand on the way back to the office.
  • Devoted the balance of the afternoon to my homily for Pentecost (Emmanuel, Champaign), taking it from the "developed outline" phase to "rough draft."
  • End-of-the-day incoming phone call from a priest outside the diocese calling to simply find out how to reach me. Well ... he did.We had a conversation that was ... you guessed it ... substantive.
  • Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary in the cathedral, followed by Evening Prayer.
