Epiphany

Today marked the beginning of my third cycle of parish visitations, and it was an honor to be with the good people of Trinity Church, Jacksonville. We celebrated the feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth. The memorable sign of the times took place in the parish hall after the liturgy. There was a video loop with a musical sound track being projected on a screen at one end of the room. When it came time for me to "say a few words" to the group, the sound track, while turned down low already, was noticeably annoying. Fr Ashmore got up to turn it down, but ... nothing changed. I turned and saw a flummoxed look on his face. Then a lovely ten-year old girl calmly got up, walked over, picked some a remote device, and the sound went down. There was nothing more to say.
