But this was our first Sunday without our former organist. She took a new position MUCH closer to her home in Seattle -- and avoiding the impending tolls across the SR-520 floating bridge.
So the bulletin's "Hymnal" column was bare. And the Hymnboard almost so: only Hymn 198 "Meditation", sung a cappella for the Kneeling Hymn. Fr. Davis decided that apparently with a bit of trepidation, but I guess he hasn't tested us that way before. It might not have been concert quality, but we have done this often enough and he was clearly pleasantly surprised.
