Chicago–day 3 and 4

On Sunday morning, we went to church, as usual. We took the L to the cathedral of the Diocese of Chicago. It was a huge, beautiful cathedral. We got there a bit early and spoke to one of the ushers about the history of the church, and the church in general. One thing I found really interesting was that Abraham Lincoln once worshipped there. The service was beautiful- I especially loved the wonderful choir and organists. I also loved how, in the Episcopal tradition, the service was almost exactly the same as our service at Holy Comforter. There were a few differences, like when we sang the Lord’s Prayer instead of speaking it. Multiple people asked us where we were from, and in a strange way, even though we were in a different state, I felt just like a do at holy comforter- at home.
