A cappella

I was surprised by the turnout today -- St. Bartholomew's was full to capacity, with even the front pews filled. Not that we were all on time; even though it's been four days since the snow fell road conditions dictate caution in places.

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.

    Sorry that this is unrelated, but I thought you may want to read a post about a moderate perspective on homosexuality, society & the Church:
