The Sun Also Rises

Some minor grumbling among the barrack-room lawyers about our Solstice morning liturgy. That is, why didn't we celebrate this morning - the morning nearest the actual Solstice - rather than yesterday morning.

And, of course, there's some logic there. We could then have celebrated that the world didn't end during the night. And we'd have been in line with the people at Stonehenge.

I can see the logic of this position, and of course we share with the Stonehenge pagans a respect for the cycles and rhythm of nature. But consider - we also share much with our Christian brothers and sisters. Especially the Anglicans and more progressive Catholics.

So I transferred the Solstice to the nearest Sunday.
