Re: 'Cursed' Cross

I googled Cursed Tree and it turns out Jesus cursed a Fig Tree .

Re: Director of Music, St George's Cathedral Southwark

That is a lot of Lay Clerks .
They get around £63.00 a service. That's not bad.

Re: Leeds International Organ Festival Launch

I read the title and thought it said "Lunch" and now I am badly disappointed.

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

I agree that some traditionalist web sites do seem to be trying to undo what Vatican 2 brought about, but most seem to be trying to undo things which happened after the council, but were not mandated by it. But surely, if things are happening after Vatican 2 that were not mandated by Vatican 2 - th...

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

Would that be a term for those who defy and deny Vatican 2 - or a term for people that preserve and respect history and heritage? Depends what you mean by traditionalist or what you think others mean by traditionalist. And a capital letter for the /t/ has an impact too.

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

That is a proper Narthex then. A bit at the back of the church - just did a Wiki search for the word! It used to be the place for penitents etc etc .

But a porch is what I suffered from. A porch should be a clear passage.

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

Does the level of demand require more than one? You could have a couple of huge ones bolted to a bench in the church, or something like an abacus, and that would do the trick. Oh we had such a marvellous narthex. Well I guess it was a porch. It had been a big room, a baptistry at one point with huge...

Re: The Best Narthex in Christendom

Put all the papers in a file (bin bag) and have a nice bunch of flowers on table with a sign that says Welcome to our parish. Or a candle. Or maybe a small fountain. A bible. Have a human being whose job is to welcome people and direct them to any information they need. Any information. Get them a b...

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

Yes I had that problem or a similar one. I thought I was banned for complaining about the biscuits! I forget how I got round it. But it has left me with a password so long and strange .... and there does not seem a way to change your password. This is not the biggest problem in the world but it is a...

Re: SSG Communications - what the heck is going on?

I just wonder - since I don't do Twitter and hardly know what it is- only that it is dangerous in the hands of an idiot ( thinking of one in particular) - if the SSG could in fact be quoted as an organisation that supports any extreme views in Liturgy, by somehow referencing the Twitter thing. It be...

Re: Parish Website Advice

Wel,l that is so 2018!
Some people communicate via Facebook..... I just complained about the ivy and brambles in a local CofE graveyard and (that sounds so weird) and got a message straight back. You can set up a group on Facebook.
Mobile phones are the way of the future. The Jesus App.

Re: O Holy Night

Well, that is better. It gets it out of the system.
To have it blasted at you as if it has something profound to say is less delightful.

O Holy Night...... (solo) :roll:
Why has this become traditional? Heard it 3 years in a row now.
Boy chorister - and yes, we clapped. It was a release from the tension of- will he, won't he, reach those high notes?
Anyway, what could be sung instead?

Re: Clapping at the end of a carol service

Oh look, I'm still logged in after the last time I posted. Which is lucky. Otherwise I have to go to my emails and find the last password activation, copy and paste it and so on and so forth there does not seem to be a facility for changing new passwords to memorable passwords on the board - or I ha...
