A great layreader

Yesterday was Neal's first time out (here) as Lay Reader, and I have to say it was a delight to listen to him. He has been very well trained. Loud enough to be heard in the back of the Nave (one of my failings), slow and deliberate, and with the sentences pointed to make them much clearer than, say, a simple monotone reading. He had clearly studied this Epistle (2 Cor vi. I.) carefully in preparation. He even prefaced it properly: "The Epistle is written in the 6th chapter of the Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians [beginning at the first verse]." That's quite a mouthful, and it didn't look like he had it written down!

I'm going to enjoy this -- except that it's going to be a hard act to follow, but follow I will, next Sunday.

    "...back of the Nave..." Reminds me of a sign in front of a local Anglican church: "Arrive early, get a seat in the back." ;)

    More seriously, the REAL trick is for a layreader in the traditional school cafeteria where so many of us meet while developing a real church building.

    Tregonsee, it's pretty hard to argue with that!
