When the service began, the eight readers were already seated silently around a communion table, three on each side, one on each end. The sanctuary lights were dimmed. Two candles were lit on the table, providing additional light by which to read. The readers each had a copy of the script in front of them and passed a handheld mike to read in turn around the table.
