I just got back from praying The Stations of The Cross.<quoted text>
Why are atheists atheists?
I'll let you puzzle over that for I while. I've got to get a move on because I've been trusted to get the prayer books to Linda's by six-thirty o'clock because we will be praying the Stations of the Cross there tonight and I've got to get some gas.
It can be a real good meditation-reflection of my life as well as The Passion of The Lord. I can relate to the three stations where Jesus falls and gets back up again. Good inspiration for me.
Anyway, I was wondering about your parish.
At ours we all get together in the parish hall after the stations and enjoy a communal meatless soup supper.
It's really like a family thing.
Each week a dozen or so ladies get the recipe for the next friday and each makes a gallon or two of soup, then at the hall kitchen the soups are blended together in large pots and kept warm till after services.
Then everybody walks down from the church and joins together with a bowl of soup, good crusty bread and water.
It really tops off a meatless Friday and gives everybody a chance to get to know one another better.
Do you folks do anything like that?
Once while visiting family in St.Louis I discovered their parish had fish frys for Lent. That was the bomb.
