Project Resilience: Masked Bell Ringers
When the pandemic hit and social distancing became the order of the day, the Westminster Bell Choir at Logan's Presbyterian Church knew it could no longer gather to rehearse in the small basement room at the church.
Undaunted, the bell choir director Cathy Bullock marched upstairs to the sanctuary with a tape measure, keeping everyone a safe six-feet apart. Then she could squeeze seven bell ringers into the space. She found music written for small ensembles. Rehearsals continued.
So if you should see a masked bell ringer slipping into the church on Tuesday or Thursday evening, wish them well. They won't be able to put on their traditional Christmas concert at the tabernacle this year. But they're hard at work preparing a special Christmas video.
