We decided to ride our bikes to the Easter service at Shanxi Rd Church last Sunday morning. (A swell idea, by the way, except for the fact that my hairdryer broke and spring just keeps refusing to arrive. That combo made for a pretty chilly wet-haired bike ride!) After taking a short-cut on our bikes that ended up being not as short as we’d hoped, we slipped into some seats our friends had saved for us. Their plan to save us some seats was ALSO a swell idea, since the church was packed long before the service began. Not a seat, or even inch of stairwell or floorspace to be found! Over 200 baptisms, the Hallelujah chorus, some fabulous children’s choir performances, and a message I almost even understood. A wonderful Easter morning!
