Well, that was amazing. I don't know how many of us were there, but there were so many we managed to crash the cafe at one point. It really was quite something to be united in prayer with people from all over the world.

Go forth on your journey from this world Erin. May God keep you safe.

That was really something. I counted 57 people in the cafe as the most at any one time, but there were folk coming in and leaving all over the place so the total number of those who were there for some of it must be far higher.

I know it's for a tragic occasion, but this kind of thing brings out all the best in the Ship. Echoing virtual hymns, serious prayers and votives interspersed with ribald comments and backchat in delightful unrestful chaos with a purpose - and above all, the firm hope of resurrection from the dead to a better place.

It's the first time I've participated in something like this and it was quite wonderful. As a retired UM pastor, I kept thinking about where we would be in our litury at any given point. Especially appreciated praying the Lord's Prayer together and the singing.
Grace and peace to all who remember Erin this day.

Missed the service, but managed to spend about 30 minutes there on a lunch break. A bit dizzying for a first-timer, but I'm sure I'll go back when it's slower. It was lovely to see how many were there, and I trust my silence was not interpreted as disinterest.

Thanks to everyone who was there... it was the best service I've been in (online or offline) since the closing service in Church of Fools. Thanks especially to everyone who came with prayers and bits of liturgy to post, but really, it was all pretty wonderful, including the jokes and asides. We're hoping to get the transcript of the vigil/wake from the server, and a tally of how many people in total logged in over the hour.

I think Nicolemrw read Kaddish. There were LOTS of readings. Hymns & music:
The Lord is My Shepherd
Thine is the Glory
Abide With Me
You'll Never Walk Alone (Carousel)
Guide me, o thou Great Jehovah
The cafe was evacuated a few times, but we carried on! OliviaG

My meeting was postponed so I was able to be there, for which I'm very grateful. I was participating in Quaker silence listening to the gifts others were able to offer, (whilst waiting for a software upgrade in the background), and it felt good to be there with you all, seated between Simon and Louise and Smudgie. Very comforting.

If the transcript isn't available I can supply the text for the prayers I used if anyone thought that would be helpful.

I was at the wake for Miss Molly, and I was there today for Erin's.

In each case, I think there has been a sense that the people who can get there represent the thoughts and prayers and intentions of everyone who can't be - in the same way that those who physically attended the funeral embodied the presence of everyone who was there 'in spirit'.

Only read this thread after visiting the cafe, or I would have been drinking something other than gin.

Yep. CoF being why I joined back in 2004. And the spirit (the Spirit) is alive.

Very very moving. Thank you all. Thank you, Eutychus and Spike for leading (as far as I could see) - though I had to leave early on. Thank you.

No credit due here. I just remembered the Church of Fools form of joining in hymns and prayers in whichever language seemed most natural, and saying "amen" at the appropriate points. I think Spike was mostly responsible for the led prayers and OliviaG chose the right hymns - but it was a truly corporate effort.

As far as I can remember, that 'form' emerged pretty much spontaneously in the earliest days of CoF, I recall being struck with how well it worked then in terms of getting the spirit of community across. As Simon has said on another thread, 'belting out' Guide me, o Thou great Jehovah [Waterworks]

I wish I'd been there but my PC wouldn't let me into the Cafe (it never does - and normally that's fine, but yesterday it wasn't). Spent an hour feeling very sad and lonely, and wishing I could have been with rest of you for comfort. If a transcript is avaialble I would very much like one.

At the wake I shared a bit from Lamentations 4.3: 'even the crocodile cares for her young'.

Someone asked if it was really there in the Bible. And, yes, it kind of is. The half line of poetry is an image of an animal caring for its young, and the animal is either a jackal (if you wrestle hard with the Hebrew) or a sea monster. And sea monsters in the ancient near east are quite often crocodiles.

Erin looked after us, collectively and sometimes individually. This will be what I remember.

It was lovely to talk to shipmates in the Cafe after I came from the funeral. I was very touched by what you all said and told me about the ship service.

Erin would be so proud. Her family and other friends (did you think we were the only ones?) [Roll Eyes] had no clue about the Ship and the people all over the world that knew and communicated with Erin.

Pease has been able to construct a transcript of the second half of the Cafe service... find it here.

Unfortunately, the Cafe logs get wiped after a restart, which is why we only have the second half, after the capsize. But still, this is a good record of what happened then.

Thanks Simon + Pease, that transcript is wonderful. I'm sorry to have missed the service, but I got a real sense of the atmosphere from reading through that.
