no church

I didn't go to Emmanuel, Killingworth on Sunday and the day didn't feel like Sunday.

And today, our bishops asked us to extend the non-church through May 10.

No Palm Sunday. No Holy Week--Maundy Thursday and Good Friday--no Easter.

No Easter!

We'll be doing services on face book, but nothing 'in person'.

For someone who has been a priest since 1976, this is a huge upheaval.

No Maundy Thursday--my favorite Holy Day. And no Easter!

A virus has cancelled Easter!

No pain, no gain, athletes say.

So to gain safety, we must have the pain of not having Easter.

Alas and Alack.

But whatever it takes to move pass this virus.

That's the way I see it.

But I will sorely miss Holy Week.
