Visitation (& Corpus Christi)

  • Customary Thursday morning weights and treadmill workout. Short-form MP in the car. At the office around 10.
  • Took a substantive phone call from one of our rectors.
  • Attended to some aspects of preparation for the impending visit to the diocese of the Bishop of Tabora and his wife.
  • Responded to an email from a priest outside the diocese inquiring about possible opportunities.
  • Placed a semi-emergency call to a tree service. There was a substantial limb down in our front yard this morning.
  • Got to work developing a developed outline for a sermon on Proper 5 (June 10 in O'Fallon) into a rough draft.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Back to the sermon work, bringing it to completion by mid-afternoon.
  • Wrote and sent an endorsement blurb for Tom Bair, an actor who is trying to develop a head of steam for his one-man show that consists of a dramatic recitation of the entire Gospel of Mark.
  • Moved the ball downfield on a paradigm-shifting Christian formation project I'm working on.
  • Spent quality time with three exegetical commentaries on Mark in preparation for preaching on Proper 18 (September 9 at Trinity, Yazoo City, MS, my DEPO parish).
  • Took some steps toward developing a model by which my own ministry might be fruitfully reviewed and evaluated.
  • Took care of some routine monthly calendar maintenance chores.
  • Drove home to retrieve Brenda and bring her back to the cathedral.
  • Officiated and preached at a celebration of Corpus Christi: Evensong, Procession (outdoors, around the cathedral bounds), and Benediction.
