From: <SProt82850@cs.com> Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2001 21:28:40 EDT   Speaking of the Great Easter vigil, we had fun at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church here in Minneapolis.   The weather was quite balmy and we started out in the courtyard for the lighting of the Paschal candle. There was enough of a breeze blowing that =   our rector couldn't get the candle lit. It finally took a small candle to =   get the big one started. And incidentally, our rector, who is a woman and =   quite good at what she does, chanted "The Light of Christ" pretty high the =   first time and of course got higher each successive time! Good for a = smile or two among the choir!   A memorable moment came as we processed into the church to the sound of a beautiful, haunting piece by Arvo Part (spelling?). A candlelit church, = the fragrance of lilies and this incredible music created a moment I hope I = never forget.   So, on with the service and we're ringing bells furiously during the = Gloria in Excelsis.

Anyone else have any special or amusing moments?
