Special Easter treats

It's been a while since we had to pull out the folding chairs for a service, but today we had to -- we were full to overflowing. So everybody got to enjoy the treats Josephine and Diane (and Kathy and Heather) had been preparing the last few weeks.

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!"

    Yikes. Spelling error in the title. Oh well, fixed now.

    Much thanks to the folks that got together to make goodies for the kids, and to Elle and Marissa for serving the parish afternoon tea. The kids loved it!

    A beautiful, festival day. One of my favorite aspects was the debut of Diane & Kathy's new banner for Eastertide, with golden butterfly symbolizing resurrection. The kids sang and signed great!
