Tonight was the first Compline of the fall semester at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, NC, where I am a member. I'd forgotten that they resumed tonight until someone mentioned it on Facebook. I still had enought time to get there, so I went.
20 singers + 1 thurifer. Nave full. Candlelight (except for music stand lights for the singers). LOTS of incense!
The picture was taken just before the service began. I tried to take some indoor pictures, but they didn't turn out well --- I think I had the camera on the wrong setting.
An exciting event took place at the end --- a man proposed to his girlfriend (yes, got down on one knee!) and she accepted.
