Three and a half hours after I got to the church to practice at the lectern with the other lectors for the Vigil, we left church again.
It was a long evening full of fire and words and songs and silence.
I hope that I was able to breathe a little life in to the Genesis reading at the beginning of the service. I think I did ok… Husband says it was a bit dramatic – but I’m ALWAYS dramatic. That’s why I’m such a good lector, I think!
When I went up to receive Communion, even the pastor said how much he enjoyed my reading. That’s always a good thing to hear, I guess!
I’m looking forward to the next time they’ll let me lector. I love being able to contribute to the service.
