I went to very nice Ash Wednesday service this evening, all by myself, at a church of my denomination that is about 14 miles away. The sermon was on Psalm 51, about the difference between mercy and repentance. There was great choir music, confession and forgiveness, and appropriate hymns. But no communion. See previous posting. My fretting about communion was for naught.
BTW, there was kneeling during the confession. I can't kneel. I was fortunate that there was room for my legs and feet when the kneeler was folded down by another worshipper.
