An Amazing Procession

Here it is, possibly my favorite moment this week:

It just says so much more than words. The extraordinary prelude, I understand, was commissioned for this service by the rector of Christ Church Plano. The prelude captures so well what it has felt like these past months, yes, even years. To God be the glory.

Indeed, to Christ our God be the glory!

A long time coming... I wish I could have been there.

Tear were streaking down my face as I watched.

Thanks to you Baby Blue.

Someday I hope I get to meet you.

I'm so thankful and happy that we now have a Church organization with constitution and canon.

Forward into the future with the Grace of The Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus our Lord

It looked like a vey joyful celebration.

I would like to suggest that those of us who remain in TEC refrain from crticizing ACNA and vice versa. We have made our decisions and I pray that God will bless those who have chosen to belong to ACNA and hope that my sisters and brothers in ACNA are praying that God will bless those of us who remain in TEC.

That truly was moving, and an amazing prelude.
Of course, they were all crossing themselves backwards . . . ;>)

I attended the amazing Eucharist at "Plano 2003" and was overcome with emotions of joy and pain during the great procession of bishops, priests, deacons, and seminarians. Had I been able to be present at Christ Church on 24 June, I´m sure tears would have been streaming down my cheeks again, with another mixture of joy and pain - joy for the new beginning and pain for the lost and those being led astray.

Thanks so much, Baby Blue, for live blogging this amazing event for those of us who couldn´t attend in person. God bless you.

Dear BabyBlue,

This Catholic needs help understanding the order of the procession. What groups walked in first, second, third, etc.?

Wilf said...

How ironic. One friend films the procession ... another friend skypes me, and tells me he's visible ten seconds into the video. A very nice convergence of things. Almost like being there.

Reminded me of that wonderful service in Uganda, or was it Nairobi, where they all sang 'The Church's One Foundation'. This brought tears to my eyes as well.
Orthodox now, but still loves those old wonderful hymns.
