Peter Clark Posted March 30, 2007 Share Posted March 30, 2007 I hope this is not too off-topic but I think it is of sufficient interest to the many of us here who work in or for a church. You will have noticed that Elton John hired the Catrhedral of St John the Divibe for his 60th birthday bash. Now this is the same Elton John who recently called for religion to be abolished! So this propmpts some questions: 1) Why did he want his birthday celebrated in a building dedicated to the upholding of a major world religion? 2) Why, given his views on religion, did the cathedral authorities allow it? 3) Has any representation been made to the cathedral authorities by disgruntled persons? Whatever next I wonder? The Rolling Stones at Canterbury with a guest appearence by David Flood on keyboards? (Groovy ivories, Dave! ) This cathedral, incidentally, is the one in which Philip Glass played Mad Rush when the Dali Lama visited (o my God is he still going on about Mad Rush I hear you cry! ) It may also be the one briefly featutred in the film 84 Charing Cross Road where the choir are singing For Unto Us a Child is Born.
