Easter Even -- Lighting of the New Fire
Last evening we celebrated Easter Even. After the starkness of Good Friday/Tenebrae, the decorations for Easter made quite a contrast. Even in the darkness of the church (all lights out), where it was a bit difficult to read until the lights were lit. The form of the service was by now familiar (we did not conduct this service in all the years of Fr. Leen's tenure), though this time all present started in the Parish Hall and proceeded through the building to the Nave.
