At East Church's Easter Sunday worship, just after the final hymn, before the decorated cross processes down the aisle and the congregation assembles on the front lawn for an outdoor benediction, a good half of the congregation eagerly dashes up to the chancel, grabs copies of Handel's Messiah, and joyously bursts into an everyone-welcome pickup rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus. I suspect for many of these folks this is the only time they have participated in a choir since last Easter, but it's a tradition we'll talk about and look forward to for the rest of the year.
