Given the engagement of the congregation in creating/passing on joy, I expected a higher rating. This morning, as part of the service, Rev. Matt Alspaugh did a no-tech version of Survey Monkey.

The second burst of applause also came after two three-part lists, each of which had a third item that was longer than the first two: "The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."
