interesting, when i went to a traditionalist anglican (very) early morning Paschal liturgy a few years ago, they had a fire burning in the dark outside the church (about 5.30am) and that was lit from old palm crosses (not the ones from the previous week! and i suppose some other stuff went into it too as it was quite big) and the people near the fire lit their candles from this, and then those behind them lit their candles from the people at the front, and so on until everyone's candle was lit, and we processed into the church behind the bishop and other clergy in complete darkness, lit only by the candles we were holding.
it was exceptionally beautiful. the whole service and the sermon also were quite 'orthodox' in nature, and for a while, i wondered if i could be a member of anglican and orthodox churches at the same time (i can be very slow to understand things at times!)
sadly, the bishop soon after was 'encouraged' to move to a new role and become a general bishop, leaving his diocese (officially not a demotion!). those of us who agreed with his views assumed this was for openly opposing the tide of liberalism within the church.
