St James of Jerusalem
Began the day with 0800 Morning Prayer in an oratory with about a dozen other people, then attended the 0830 Eucharist for the feast day in the VTS chapel. (FWIW, I rather like the liturgical space of this still relatively new chapel, the music, the preaching, and most of the liturgical ceremonial--cleanly catholic. The rite itself I was rather less fond of--mostly EOW.) Then the directors of the Living Church Foundation met until around 2:20, with a brief break for lunch in situ. I then got in a brisk walk around the campus on a lovely fall afternoon before returning to the deanery for some Anglican Communion-related conversation with a small group that included the Bishop of Coventry. Dinner for directors and foundation members was at a nearby hotel restaurant.
