Fast Friday Five

Today, what are you:

1. Wearing

Blue shorts and a green and blue t-shirt ~ day~off clothes.

2. Reading

Brian McLaren's A Generous Orthodoxy. I started it a long time ago but got side~tracked, so I'm trying again.

3. Eating

Strawberry Shortcake ~ Strawberry Shortcake ~ Strawberry Shortcake

4. Doing

Going through some things in the house and making a pile to bring to Goodwill ~ pending hubby's approval, of course.

5. Pondering

How to handle the logistics of a 200+ wedding with Communion. (We UM's don't have many weddings with Communion, at least in this part of the country.) For starters, where does the wedding party stand so as not to get in the way?

ah... pass the shortcake! on the wedding - we had ours with HC and the wedding party sat in the choir loft... however another option I have seen is to simply "reserve" front pews for the wedding party. How cool though that they are having HC - I wish more couples would!

Songbird said...

Yes, I think they just sit to the side or in the front. You know, like the Royal Family!

Rev Scott said...

What about having the wedding party serve as communion assistants? (Assuming there are only a few of them - if you have 20 people you're going to run out of communion options before people)

Sally said...

wow that will be an amazing wedding! Great play enjoy your day off!

Teri said...

now I want shortcake! will you mail some over? :-)

wow! i am a librarian married to a pastor

does he always bring you books home to read? i am terribly guilty of that

oh yes everyone else took my good wedding communion ideas, except one caveat: if you have steps up to the chancel, make sure the communion assistants/wedding party has dresses that won't trip on the way up or down.
