Just unBELIEVable! Right out of that town in Scotland that comes back = to life for one day every hundred years. Can't remember the name. Not G=F6tterd=E4mmerung, but a name like that.   What fantastic way to BE church.   Alan     On 3/1/04 2:01 PM, "quilisma@cox.net" <quilisma@cox.net> wrote:   > I forgot to mention that the same church (I think) still doesn't allow > women to vote in Voters' Assembly, but the women COME to Voters' > Assembly and sit with their husbands and give them a sharp elbow in = the > ribs if they even TRY to vote the way they think they shouldn't = (chuckle). >=20 > Some years ago they suffered a season under an anti-liturgy, = anti-music > pastor (who has since left the ministry) ... they tried to reason with > him; finally, Voters' Assembly rose up (led by their HUGE choir) and > tossed him out on his ear (chuckle) ...   There can be no answer to this, but HOW ON EARTH did they get stuck with = a guy like THAT?   > this is a congregation where the old folks STILL come on Saturday and declare > their intention to Pastor that they're going to receive Holy Communion = on > Sunday ...=20   Yes, and they are subject to "examination" as to their fitness TOO! = It's not JUST a perfunctory "announcement."   > they're TERMINALLY traditional AND high-church as far as liturgy and = music is > concerned ... those of you who are on my music download list saw the ENORMOUS > Good Friday Tenebrae service I wrote for them on commission. >=20 > Now that their calling procedure is somewhat more organized (parish > profile, etc.), at the TOP of their Call Sheet is "DON'T MESS WITH THE > MUSIC!"
