  • Grace Notes

    My usual church time is the Saturday night service. If I do go to church on Sunday, I prefer going at 9 a.m.

    A few weeks ago, however, I went to the later Sunday morning service because I was meeting someone afterward for a newspaper story I was working on.

    On Saturday nights, I like to watch the sky through the giant arched window above the stage area in the sanctuary. At this time of year, the sun sets while church is going on and dusk is gorgeous, with the sky changing from blue to amber to black.
