Friday

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.

  • Presided and preached at a Mass, using propers for Friday in Week of VII Easter.
  • Presided at the regular May meeting of the Diocesan Council.
  • Participated in some substantive ad hoc after-meeting conversations.
  • Lunch from Hardee's, eaten at home.
  • Consented to the consecration of the bishop-elect of Bethlehem.
  • Attended by phone to a personal matter.
  • Wrestled with my exegetical notes on the readings for Proper 5 and emerged with a homiletical message statement (St Michael's, O'Fallon on June 10).
  • Planned the details of Morning and Evening Prayer for the St Michael's Conference. Time-consuming.
  • Took a first prayerful pass at the readings for Proper 18, in preparation for preaching at my DEPO parish, Trinity Church in Yazoo City, MS on September 9.
