Prayer
Dear Fr. Simon,

I, for one, hope that you will keep 'rambling', because if your words are 'rambling' I could do with more of it.

They are moving, apposite and instructive. One of the things one comes to realise as one 'becomes' Orthodox is the importance of the Liturgy - the ceremony and the actions, the rhythm and the cadences, and your words help us to understand how this is so.

I have long been convinced that the pared down liturgies of the modern Anglican Church missed something of vital importance, and I now begin to apprehend what that is.

Thank you for your words.

In Christ,

John

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
