I think all that talk of wanking put people off.

07-04-2006, 11:56:30
yeah, I think that discussion should have it's own forum



07-04-2006, 12:15:54
I find it quite difficult to wank and post at the same time...:cute:

07-04-2006, 12:19:41
get a dog

07-04-2006, 12:21:09

Get the dog to post for me?

To wank me?

Je ne comprends pas (practicing for Brussels).

07-04-2006, 16:48:29
counterwank was the best suggestion so far.

07-04-2006, 20:01:06

07-04-2006, 20:37:52
Counter (post-coital) glow?

Coital would imply that soemone got some. Which obviously ain't happening on this forum.

08-04-2006, 00:47:45
Speak for yourself. Husband and I had the last two days off together, so we made the best of it. :smoke:

08-04-2006, 06:14:24
I gave up posting for Lent

08-04-2006, 06:57:17
when is lent?


08-04-2006, 07:09:15
own goal

Don't they teach you SDAs anything?

It's the 40 days before Easter (representing Jesus' 40 days in the desert). Actually it starts 46 days before Easter because the 6 intervening Sundays are not considered part of Lent. They already belonged to God, so you cannot further devote them.

It starts on Ash Wednesday (the day after Shrove Tuesday aka Mardi Gras aka Pancake Tuesday aka Fat Tuesday) and continues through Palm Sunday (one week before Easter), through Good Friday (2 days before Easter) and traditionally ends when you celebrate Easter Mass on Easter Sunday itself.

08-04-2006, 07:18:15
Ash Wednesday is so called because in a special service the ashes from the previous year's Palm Sunday's burnt palm leaves are inscribed on believers' foreheads in the shape of a cross.

Palm Sunday celebrates Jesus' entry into Jerusalem 5 days prior to his crucifixion. The Gospel according to St John mentions that the people of Jerusalem accorded Jesus the honour of covering his entry into the city with palm leaves. Catholics reenact Jesus' entry into Jerusalem every year on Palm Sunday, using palm leaves which are then saved for the next year's Ash Wednesday.

08-04-2006, 07:25:35
hmm, why do they do palm sunday I wonder?

I know of the biblical stuff of course, and new what easter and lent were

but I can never seem to remember when they are


08-04-2006, 07:26:25
seems a sort of odd thing to do

so does lent, but I do understand the idea of giving up something


08-04-2006, 07:30:36
Because it commemorates the great occasion of his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, when the populace greeted him as their saviour.

08-04-2006, 07:31:49
This entry gets 10 verses or so in each of the 4 gospels, so it's not exactly obscure.

08-04-2006, 07:33:51
I know the entry in the gospels pretty well, I plan on reading it when I get back home

I just don't see the point of celebrating it

maybe I need to think more about what it signifies.. what do catholics think (I know ou went to catholic school)

Palm Sunday is considered the beginning of the Holy Week in which sinners were reconciled. The triumphal entry in general and the palm fronds in particular are seen as portents (or symbols) of the imminent triumph over death through the crucifixion.

08-04-2006, 07:48:35
I think the only rituals the SDA church involves itself in (to greater or lesser extant, I think some do only once a year) are: (done at the same time)

feet washing

Often easter has something special (like Christmas) but not always, and it's generally just different, not some set thing.

This sabbath is communion actually. Makes me a little nervous, I think I have taken part in communion three or four times in the last decade.

Easter must be the holiest day in all of history for a Christian, yet you guys don't celebrate it very seriously?

That boggles the mind.

Christmas is virtually meaningless next to Easter.

08-04-2006, 07:53:52
Bah, the presents aren't as good for Easter, if any.

Oh, I agree.

I didn't say SDAs celebrate Christmas much either. I don't think I have religiously celibrated Christmas in years (except for maybe going to some music event). But that is also probably a factor of not going to church much.

Likely there is a Christmas and Easter themed service for most churchs.

SDAs were very anti anything that seemed Catholic for a while though, so that is probably why no big deal is made of holidays.
