Not the church for me. Vene Sancti Spiritus and frankincense yes, but I didn’t think I could be angered by clergy in an Episcopal church and I was. Dangerous conflation of personal opinion and scripture, no detectable scholarship and transparently passive aggressive. Interacting with a bright but inarticulate child so people were moved to laugh at the child… Perhaps a well-meaning soul for all that, but I needed fresh air after and had to focus to separate celebrant from sacrament. Also a peeve: bells during the mass, good. Electric effects bells jarring. A weird weird experience.
Getting the taste of this morning out of my mind as I unpack. Found this.
