The weekend's nor'ester disrupted electrical power to St. Joseph's church; it was all dark except for some dim emergency lighting. The sun peeked in a bit, as well.
I wonder how churchgoers in other Christian affiliations would react to such a "service interruption" on Sunday morning. Here are my fanciful speculations, offered facetiously:
"Electricity was working fine yesterday." - Seventh Day Adventists
"Here, light these candles - we found them when we moved in." - Anglicans
"Curse the day we installed electric candles!" - Novus Ordo Catholic1
"How'll we brew the coffee?" - Methodists
"'Tis better to light a candle ... 'post tenebras, lux!'" - Presbyterians
"What preacher worth his weight uses a mixing console?" - Baptists
"Sound reason for a 'Tenebrae' service!" - Lutherans
"Our ἐκκλησία predates electrification." - Eastern Orthodox
"We don't hold with music playing." - Quakers
"We make our own light." - Pentecostals
Feel free to suggest your own.
The recessional hymn was "This Little Light of Mine," one of Kenny's favorites.
1 yup, that's me.
