Special Easter treats
Normally we sing one of the Hymns for Children for the church school procession before the sermon, during which one of the children carries the church school banner down the aisle to lead all the children out. But this Sunday some of the children sang for us, and signed the last song (American sign language, which John taught them). Then a brand new banner was brought out with a golden butterfly on it.
A sweet moment in a wonderful service, winding up with a thundering Salve Festa Dies: "Hail thee, festival day!"
