Thank you Peter for being open enough to share what works for you. And while you were not prescriptive about it, I’m sure others beside myself will find your piece helpful.

For myself, I found the YouTube video of last Sunday’s Eucharist from St Alban’s Abbey uplifting. Today being a major feast, does anyone know if someone somewhere is doing something similar for the Annunciation? I googled it and came across this from what now seems a different age: “Cowley St John. The Annunciation of Our Lord to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Sung Eucharist followed by Champagne Reception.Bartlemas Chapel.”

Interesting article written by Rev. Dr. Kyle Wagner, a younger priest, about the imminent future, the pandemic, and the viability of the church as we have known it. (I tend not to read AJ since the GS bureaucracy took away its editorial independence–but this is a good article that is being sent around.)
