Sunday Tableau

My home parish is not a large church, so I was not expecting to see a sufficient number of acolytes to make up a Gospel Processional, complete with crucifer, bookbearer, and two candlebearers.

The rector is a Lutheran pastor---there is full communion between the Lutheran and Episcopal denominations---and (obviously) a woman. She's a living symbol of the changes that have come to the Church over the past half-century.

But is she doing a good job? Based on the evidence of our own eyes, she is.
