Random and not so random musings from a 5th generation NE Missourian who became a 1st generation Episcopalian. Let the good times roll!

Sunday, I had an opportunity to go to St. Louis and attend services at Christ Church Cathedral. Wow. We are talking serious pagentry here. Three priests, a deacon, eight acolytes, and a verger...and that is just for a "regular" service there!

It was my first time inside the cathedral so I spent a lot of time just gawking. They have an amazing set of sculptures behind the communion rail. You could go to that rail every week of the year and see something different.

Maybe this is because it's Advent, but I felt really connected to my own "smallness" in there. "Smallness" is not hard to experience in a cathedral!
