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.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
