St Silas' is 'snake-belly low' and 'happy but not clappy' according to the recently published review of one of our meetings on Ship of Fools. It's a fair review given the subjective preferences indicated by the reviewer's other offerings here and here.
It all takes me back to The Varwell Incident. Of course, in that instance, there was The Varwell Incident Mark 2. We learned some lessons between those visits. However in this case, no matter how slick our meeting was, I suspect our mystery reviewer wouldn't have felt very comfortable.
The interesting thing for me is that with Simon's review, I felt it much more important to do something in response. Perhaps it was the fact that he was identifiable, rather than hidden behind a nom-de-plume?
Nevertheless, one thing for all St Silas' readers to remember is that the welcoming doesn't end when you've said hello at the beginning of the service! And who was that mystery 'very cute guy sitting two rows in front of me (alas, too young)'? Anyone care to speculate from the clues of where Kingsfold was sitting that morning (we know who the sketcher is!)?
