Ash Wednesday

I walked over to Gethsemane Episcopal Church for their noon service today. It was the first time I had been there in several years. I had forgotten how beautiful the inside is, and how much I miss the old style Anglo-Catholic adornments we had back at St. Luke's in Evanston.

I am perfectly aware that these externals are not essential for a church, and I have had many excellent worship experiences in other environments. However I still like the old stuff. I find it comforting.
