Wednesday (St Hildegard of Bingen)

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Check-in conversation with the interim provost, Fr Gene Tucker.
  • Prepared to preside and preach at the midday Mass.
  • Spoke by phone with the rector of one of our parishes on a couple of diverse and unrelated issues.
  • Followed through on some Putnam Trust-related administrivia.
  • Communicated by email with two clergy over some (unrelated) emerging pastoral concerns.
  • Put meat on the bones of my homily for Proper 21 (St John's, Centralia).
  • Celebrated and preached the midday Mass, commemorating the lesser feast of St Hildegard of Bingen. Even played some of her music on my iPhone during the homily.
  • Lunch from TG, eaten at home.
  • (working from home now) Fleshed out some of the plans for the November clergy day.
  • Attended to two smallish tasks, one for Forward Movement and one for Nashotah House.
  • Returned a phone call from one our rectors.
  • Did some troubleshooting on the the diocesan camcorder, which I use in the production of catechetical videos, which I would like to be doing more of, but seem always beset with technical issues. This involved a trip to the vendor, Creve Couer Camera. I'm happy to say they were most gracious and eager to help me solve my problem, which I am optimistic they actually did.
  • Hit the road at 5:30 for points south. En route to Alton, spoke by phone with Cameron Nations, one of our seminarians, a senior at Sewanee. 
  • Met with the vestry of Alton Parish, charting a course for the coming months in the wake of the upcoming retirement of their esteemed rector, Fr David Boase. Home around 1opm.
