Later still. I was blogging like a fiend during GA, only to drag afterwards. I thought I would promote this one entry -- the most read and originally published June 21 to the top for reconsideration.
Later. Another fragment came through: the end of the Clarke Wells liturgical element -- people were always confusing me for him, to my credit -- and saw Clyde Grubbs light the chalice as Marjorie Bowens-Wheatley's surviving spouse, which made me very sad. I think I'll leave it there. (Memorial page at the UUA.org legacy site)
Blogging because the feed is congested during Beth Miller's extended explanation distinguishing worship and a graduation. But for the life of me, by her logic, I would be hard pressed to call an ordination, baptism, marriage, confirmation or induction of new members worship. And the explanation sucked the life out of the service -- that is, until the feed dried up. Perhaps lot of people are watching. It freed up for a couple of stanzas of Rank by Rank, and then down again. I'll give it a few minutes before giving up.
In happier news, I saw Ned Wight and Barbara Wells ten Hove in the ministers' choir beforehand and a bunch of pixilated faces, perhaps of others I know. PeaceBang, were you wearing a black or dark blue tunic-cut shirt with a three-quarters length sleeve?
