Thank you, all, you are most kind.

It's hard to disentangle the conflicting approaches in the Greek and Russian traditions at times.

I know what you mean. I spent most of my time in the Greek tradition, though I did serve a few years in a Church that followed Russian tradition. The fun ones were the ones that had a mix of both.

It seems I've been promoted from candle dude to incense dude as we have a newbie at the altar.

I like this better.

Congratulations!

Thank you, my friend.

I also had to carry the processional cross for the first time (which is both larger and heavier than me) to much comic effect.

I'll be sure to rush for the censer the moment the Cherubic Hymn begins next time.

Vigil, Vespers and Matins is far more complicated than serving DL IMHO.. There are many more variables.

Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

I've done both. Most Liturgies are straightforward, but it's hard when doing it alone or with an inexperienced assistant.
I can do Vespers/Vigil alone without problems, so I think Liturgy is harder, because there are more variables (water, wine, bread), in addition to the normal liturgical articles
