This was a lovely Sabbath! While Jim cleaned the house, I helped sing a service for St. Luke’s parish while the Bishop confirmed eight people – a half-year crop. The church is swelling fast here, and we have two visitations from the Bishop per year to confirm the new members. It was a special day for me because I had a solo and sang it OK. I do not like exposed, high parts, and this one had a high G sharp. It was a part of a lovely piece by Brench Boden, a lyrical, modern, jazzy rendition of Psalm 8.
Since this was a fifth Sunday we had a break from the public meetings today and spent our afternoon and early evening watching three movies, Whee, three, count them, and dozing. We were both awake all the way through the middle movie, though, “A Good Woman” – a modernization of Oscar Wilde’s deliciously cynical and witty “Lady Windermere’s Fan” which brings it from the 1820s to the 1930s – enjoying its incredible spate of cleverness and wisdom.
It was a perfect leisure day! We said a fond good night around 11 PM after offering the Gaia Meditation at 9.
