Anyone who knows me, or has read my ramblings for the diocese, will know that I have a mixed relationship with prayer. Holding down a couple of jobs (and this is ironic, as one of those jobs is working for the Church), means that I tend to spend the time when churches are holding their regular services getting other things done.
I recently wrote:
Nowadays, I’m often not as rooted in the worship as I feel I should be. I’m sitting in the back of the church posting something about the service on social media, reviewing pictures to make sure I have what we need, or checking ahead in the order of service, so I can work out what I ought to be doing next. The plus side though, as I’ve mentioned before, is that I get to take part in a great number of life-changing events.Spirit, June 2018
Having a chance to join in morning and evening prayers while at the conference, with no other obligations, was very welcome. In the process, I got to hear many things that I needed to hear. Of course, the other piece of irony was that I still had my camera with me.Copyright © 2018 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
