Members of our Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Filipino congregations were there, and each congregation was in charge of different parts on the Evensong we celebrated together. We heard readings and music in many different languages, saw beautiful dance demonstrations and yes, at the end, everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner. We missed our Vietnamese brothers and sisters who were unable to join us this evening.
I so enjoy EAM gatherings, and found this evensong spiritually uplifting -- what a wonderful way to start the New Year!
Tonight I'll be with members of the Chinese speaking churches here in the diocese to celebrate Chinese New Year -- the year of the dragon.
Happy New Year everyone!
