Is anyone in London going to a central London imposition of ashes this lunchtime? I've just realised I can't make it home in time for the Coventry services this evening.
Another option would be if there was a 18.30 service in London. My meeting finishes at 6pm.
Help, help, I'm being oppressed!
Seriously, if all else fails KCL Chaplaincy on the Strand will be having their ecumenical Penitence and Repentance
at 1.30pm - obviously I won't be there but a few people who know me will be and you'll surely be welcomed.
Actually, it'd be worth it just to hear the choir sing the Allegri Miserere. *sigh*Edited at 2008-02-06 09:59 am (UTC)
I was going to say "Help, help, I'm being monty python'd!" :)
Yes, yes, go to KCL. The adorable thin camp chaplaincy assistant (probably wearing a stripy jumper) is a good friend of mine. (I seem to know a worryingly large number of future Anglican clergy.)

( Christian content, danger, may be oppressive )
*blinks* Dude (er, dudette?), that was oppressive?!
When I saw that lj-cut, I thought you were going to be opening a big can of debating worms about whether it was right to impose Christian morals on other people if you were sincerely convinced by divine revelation of their rightness, or some such. (And hence I clicked through the cut with great eagerness, naturally, since that would be bound to be more interesting than work :-) Anything short of that isn't oppressive!

Quite. Where is the angst we were promised?

Sorry, I was being snarky and sarcastic about the Vicky flamewar
. Maybe I should try to give up being bitchy for Lent...
:) That was my impression. Well, I guessed it wasn't going to be *actually* in your face, but I expected thoughts rather than logistics :) Sorry, atreic, we should all stop commenting on your cut and talking about your point, but I don't have anything to say about that :)
I was being snarky and sarcastic
Ah! Well, to be fair, if you snarky and sarcastic turns out as using lj cuts in an excessively scrupulous way, lent's going pretty well so far :)
Come to St Peter's and hear me sing!
(Argh, not practical...)
I read "imposition of ashes" and wondered who'd died.
(S) (had forgotten it was pancake day yesterday)

Um, did the copious pancakes not give you a clue? ;-)

I'm going to a 6.30 at Warwick avenue and I'd love to have company if you'd like to join me.

Sorry, while it would have been lovely I don't think I can get from the RSS to Warwick Avenue in time, so I went to the lunchtime service at Southwark Cathedral (because my meeting didn't finsih until 12.10, and they were at 12.45 instead of St Paul's 12.30). Which was really nice.
Hopefully see you Saturday though!

Last year I went to St. Paul's at lunchtime. I think it's 12.30 but they have a great website.
Oh shit. Have not yet thought of something to give up for lent. Except perhaps swearing. Oops.
