  1. Hi Middletons! I enjoyed the episode and hearing how you're dealing with these interesting times. My church has had some similar problems and approaches. They've done a couple of Facebook Live services, but are transitioning to pre-recorded YouTube services, as the diocese has asked clergy not to risk themselves with any kind of live service. So that's some challenges.

    Also, our choir has been having Zoom meetups instead of rehearsals, since the technology doesn't work as well for practicing together. So as you say about some people and tech: the choir has a handful of college students we sponsor as "choral scholars", and they aren't available for the meetups, so it's just us older folks, and that makes me the youngest one. At 52 years of age. Amazingly, we have a good percentage of the choir connecting and handling the tech without help from younger family members. I've been pleasantly surprised how savvy the group is. And the meetup is just a nice social gathering in Christ.

    I'll keep you in my thoughts this Easter. Thanks for spreading some joy this season.

    May the Force be with you.

    1. OH! Did I tell you that I watched Good Omens on Amazon Prime? Loved it! Started just after "stay at home" orders had begun. A story about the antichrist and the end of the world. Not ... great ... timing on my part. But it was so good! Thanks!
