The Kindness of a Friend
When I came to St. Paul's, I was a young man - only in my 30's. Now that I've passed the 50 year old mark, there are times I don't move as freely as I did in the past. Kenny noticed that it was a bit of a chore when distributing the Sacrament for me to step up repeatedly onto the main floor of the chancel from the floor of the nave. I have to do this on the lectern side, because there's a very tight squeeze with the lectern and this allows the assistant to distribute our Lord's blood without me getting in the way. So Kenny asked if I would like to have a step there. I thought it over for all of a second and said: "yes!" I wasn't sure how it would look though, for the floor is carpeted on both levels. Well, Kenny - creative soul that he is - made it and painted it the exact color of the carpet. I didn't even notice he'd put it in, till I went to climb up and found out I didn't have to. I could STEP up. WHEW! My knees were quite appreciative. So like Kenny to notice a little something like that - and to provide a solution so swiftly. Thanks!
