Up and out of my accommodations in Litchfield in time to preside and preach for the 8am liturgy at St Andrew’s, Edwardsville. This was a “public” service, and there were about a dozen people in attendance. The 10am celebration is “closed to the public,” and there were only four people physically present (and distanced) in the room (YFNB, the Rector, a lector/server, and the organist), but it was live-streamed and reached around forty people. The fun part was that, as it was not a public service, and we were well-spaced, we could sing. It’s been awhile, and it was balm to my soul. Still on the lookout for data and studies that would support loosening those bonds.
