In the Telegraph, a reflection on Evensong finds that threshold to be very Anglican.
Choral Evensong is a liturgical expression of Christ's Nolle me tangere – 'Do not touch me. I have not yet ascended to my Father' (St. John 20: 17). It reminds us that thresholds can be powerful places of contemplation; and that leaving someone alone with their thoughts is not always denying them hospitality or welcome.I've always loved Evensong. Perhaps the best service to invite someone to is a well-done Evensong, peaceful, contemplative. I love discovering a "real" Evensong when we joined the Cathedral, with the superb choirs and music, and the incense (which is known to be anti-depressant).
Truly a jewel of Anglicanism.
