Tonight we had three adult Baptisms including, delightfully, one of our current choral scholars. We also had all seven Old Testament readings, for the first time in the twenty-eight years I’ve been attending the Cathedral. But I have to say I didn’t notice the time passing. We got through it all in a jam-packed two and a half hours, anyway.
