I’ll add this to the main site for subscribers if anyone would like me to. I hesitated because I think it needs a title saying ‘intercessions’ or somesuch to make it clear what is going on.
Update: I don’t think it is that good a cartoon as most people who have seen it have looked at it a bit blankly.
It is, perhaps, something about public prayer in church. I don’t like prayers that go on and on and seem to be carefully crafted so as to be impressive in their content and delivery. That seems to me to violate principles such as that laid out in the sermon on the mount in Matthew 6 verse 5 for instance.
I’m not sure whether I find praying intercessions as we do in a standard anglican service very helpful anyway. Perhaps I engage more with something more creative, but then more creative approaches often bring forth cringing if they are not done well.
I am a hopeless case, that I realise.
