Today as we were beginning to have our Palm Sunday service, which begins outside and we process inside for the beginning of the service, our pastor began with a few announcements, customary for how we begin our service. He mentioned the hymn "All Glory Laud and Honor", but stumbled over the words, unusual for him. He spoke a few more words, and then I saw one of the vestry members walk toward him and take his elbow, and then another walked by his other side. By that time I noticed he was visibly not well. They entered the parish hall and I went to the front of the church to notify the greeter, who is also a registered nurse. She went to the parish hall and I made an announcement there may be a brief delay, as our priest was not feeling well. I went to the back to check on how things were going, and our pastor was resting on the sofa. After some discussion, he decided to get checked out, as it is better to go and find all is well, than to wish to have gone sooner. At present, he is being checked for the possibility of a mini stroke. He is able to talk but it seems a little slower.
The church service continued with all being the same until after the offertory as we changed to Morning Prayer.
Asking for prayers for our pastor, especially in light of his health and for him not to worry about Holy Week too much (and he probably will). At this point his health is much more important to us.
