Nice plug for Orthodoxy at the end... almost as if she's saying "Well, the Orthodox are quaint (like the Quakers) for not adopting modern changes (like pews)...  Eh, I'm being overly sensitive.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
