I only have a moment, but I wanted to post on my first Sunday here at the U. The first Sunday at a new place is a really strange thing. While I will be leading parts of worship, I probably know less about what is supposed to be going on than most of the people in the room. Today I am assisting in traditional worship which also means I will be a radically different space than I am used to. Grace had a pretty small, informal space. I will be up front in a giant sanctuary this morning with overwhelming stained glass, a balcony, and marble flooring on the chancel. The space is intimidating enough without all the people!
