Thank you!

>>Awww. This is really nicely depicted.<<

I'm glad this felt right to you.

>> I like the pastor's reaction, too. <<

He was really quite adamant about keeping the church a welcoming place.

As you can probably guess, I"m not much for what most people call church... but I like that one. Especially that Steinar respected Father Mikael to back down... perhaps, if Steinar didn't already have the seeds of a lesson by service's end, then the Farm's future presence may teach him one? Funny how putting faces (and eventually, hugs?) on different-ness has a way of untwisting peoples' knickers... :D

Same here ...

>> but I like that one. <<

... so I modeled it after a few that I have liked.

>> Especially that Steinar respected Father Mikael to back down...<<

Steinar is stubborn, but not wholly devoid of civilization.

>> perhaps, if Steinar didn't already have the seeds of a lesson by service's end, then the Farm's future presence may teach him one? <<

Perhaps at some point. Gods know he hasn't given in yet, and he's not exactly observant. I mean, come on: he's trying to slut-shame the only married man I've identified on the farm, whose extra immediate family member is asexual. The clue, he has it not.

True. At least some folks are being sensible around him. It may soak in eventually.
