Hooked [Apr. 20th, 2009|09:41 am]
Tony Grist
That was Low Sunday. Not many came to church. After the service I picked dandelions. I gave the flowers to Ourdert and the leaves to the rabbits.

And I befriended a young man who turned out to have a rather ticklish problem. We brought him home and I found myself ringing round, trying to find him the specialised help he needs. I got somewhere, I think- but the story isn't over yet..

I still struggle against being pulled into church life, but the more I struggle the further the hook goes in. As Ailz points out, I was carrying on yesterday- in taking the young man under my wing- as if I were the bloody vicar.

Isnt that what the Christian church is about? Helping? You dont have to be a vicar (or even a church member) to help "one of the least of these". Good for you, Tony!

I should have added that good works are not the exclusive province of religion, either.

The thing about the church is that helping people is a big part of its charter, its mission statement or whatever. If it doesn't help it's not doing the job it was set up to do
