1 April 2007

We appreciated Pewgilist's report on his/her visit to Grace. Just a couple of comments for correction:

The "unimpressive organ console near the pulpit" is a piano. The organ console is in the organ loft along with the church musician, unless he is playing the piano.

The "small table in front of the altar rail" is actually a communion table. Our "altar" is not moveable out from the wall, and so in keeping with the recommendations of Vatican II we have a communion table at which the pastor presides.

Wine is available from either the common cup or individual cups, along with grape juice in individual cups for children or others. Like the Anglicans, we do not practice intinction.

About "the unbilled acolytes". Those who participate are listed in the bulletin. One was an assisting minister and the other an acolyte.

Peace

Revd Loretta Jaunzarins
Pastor, Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church
