Church Today at St. Mary's Episcopal Church 02/27/11

Here are some more faceless photographs and some others I took at church today.  The people I worship with are friendly, warm, and good to one another. We are ordinary people.  Our services are solemn and our place of worship is somewhat dimly lit.  I'm trying to capture the ordinariness, the solemnity, and the lighting in these photographs.  The one shot in color is the candle altar.  I keep concerns of others in a mental prayer vault during the week.  When I get to church, I can't remember all the people I'm concerned about and I imagine that when I light a candle, the prayers in my inward vault are set free, the ones I remember and the ones I've forgotten.  You can see by my last picture that I was the last to leave the sanctuary today.

All are very good, but I really like the pew shot. Good lines.

The black & white add a nice effect to St Mary's ordinary-ness. I like the candle perspective, too. I have a hard time trying to remember everyone I want to pray for in the service. I may see you at the 11:00 service next week. I have vestry duties.
