It's been a busy morning, starting about 7:30 a.m. with the arrival of the repaired (yay!) bracket. The bracket went up, no problem. Then it was time for the bell. The workers hooked it to the crane and got it well secured before hoisting it.
I also got an opportunity to see the ringing mechanism inside and to sign my name as the sixth rector on the inside as well.
Then it was time for the bell to ascend. It went up without a hitch and got bolted into place. Now we are waiting for the electrician to hook up the wiring and then we will be able to test its tone. I am looking forward to ringing it in worship for the first time on Sunday.
