How I spent today in London.
11.15 am - sung Eucharist in St Margaret's Chapel - Westminster Abbey.
Next - Joan Miro Exhibition - Tate Gallery, Bankside.
3.15 - Choral evensong at St Paul's Cathedral.
6.30 - 10th Anniversary Service of 9/11 at Westminster Abbey.
I feel very much more confident and at home attending such special services as these, since I have been regularly attending my local church, where my loyalty will remain for as long as I live in this area.
At Westminster Abbey we were told that "all who take communion at their own church are welcome to receive it here." Walking through the choir to receive communion I almost became transfixed to the spot for the power of the Holy spirit taking hold of me in that place. The power of the Holy Spirit resonating through the voices of the choir enveloped me and vibrated through my very being. I felt as if my very atoms had been momentarily expanded with ecstasy. That is the best way I can explain it. The choir evidently enjoy the interaction too, you can just feel it.
Either I shall sleep very well tonight or remain wide awake for most of it!
