Sunrise 6:46: A new kind of Sunday

For the past four plus years, the Dawn Joggers have had a Sunday routine of walking with Cassie in the morning and church (followed by dinner out usually) at 5:00 in the afternoon. They were part of a steady group of worshipers so loyal to that time slot, they were called "5 o'clockers." In recent months, the male DJ's mobility has restricted his ability to participate in the morning part of their Sunday ritual but they continued their late afternoon worship. Today dawned a new kind of Sunday - one in which they worshiped in the morning. (That meant, at least for today, a near dawn jog by the female DJ.) It's part of a new Sunday schedule (two services - at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM - instead of four ) and a new style of worship (more casual, more upbeat) instituted by Holy Trinity's new rector, Mike Spillane. Not surprisingly, he preached about joy even in hardship...
