Well, at least at Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach:

Construction is under way to replace part of the roof at the historic Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

The roof covers the administrative offices and the choir room overlooking the courtyard and gardens. Advanced Roofing is the contractor.

David Semadeni, a junior warden and a member of the vestry, said $326,000 has been allotted for the project.

It is part of ongoing program of church improvements. Some reroofing work was done last year and refurnishing of the bell tower took place a couple of years ago. Work began a week ago and should be completed in July.

One thing for sure: in a church drained by litigation, Bethesda marches on.

I also noticed the confirmation class behind Southeast Florida Bishop Leo Frade:

I cannot imagine being in a confirmation class defiled by the likes of Leo Frade.  I’m glad I was able to get it done by a bishop of whom the worst was said was that his nickname was “Motor Mouth.”

One more thing: I noticed that Bethesda has a Vacation Bible School.  Fancy that, I never remember such a thing at Bethesda.  Their theme this year is “High Seas Adventure.”  Where were we during summers in Palm Beach?  Frequently, on a real “high seas adventure!

Cruising the Little Bahama Bank between West End and the Abacos, the summer before. Not a visually appealing boat, and dreadfully slow (it cruised at 10 knots,) it was a good in the high seas, which was about to be tested here.
