Don't wimp out on a three-hour service

True, most folks usually arrive late (if at all), but if we can endure three hours of prayers every Saturday morning (not to mention afternoon or evening prayers, another hour), then surely you can get to the Easter vigil once a year! I've attended one--not a Catholic one, mind you, but an Episcopalian-style service on the Saturday night before Easter--and found it both impressive, and beautiful.
