Holy week hiatus.
The events Christians commemorate this week are deeply personal to me. They also happen to be the parts of my religious life that have never felt integrated — or perhaps integratable — into my being a Unitarian Universalist. (This is a sociological claim, not a theological one.) And because my wife is Episcopalian, I have largely taken to celebrating Holy Week with her. Tonight I'll attend the Maundy Thursday service at King's Chapel; tomorrow Mrs Philocrites and I will attend the Veneration of the Cross liturgy at the chapel of the Society of St John the Evangelist (the Episcopal monastery in Harvard Square); and early Sunday morning we'll be back at SSJE (if we're not absolutely exhausted) for the pre-dawn Easter vigil. Later Sunday morning, I'll attend her congregation's festival eucharist and then help out with the Sunday school's Easter egg hunt. Then dinner, which we'll have spent much of Saturday preparing.
Which is to say that you shouldn't expect to hear much from me until Monday.
