It’s good to rest in God’s presence – in many ways that’s what being in the square is all about. Just resting and praying and being with the community, and today was all about just that. Resting, praying and meeting, an amazing French Sommelier who told me all about his dad and his amazing ideas about why we’re here, a wise old dad still looking after his kids as best he could after they’d long left home, a local councillor who told me all about her family, local shop keepers most of whom would love me to bless their businesses, local personalities friends from church one of whom had ventured out of her house for the first time. Listening, chatting and praying.
The general bonhomie and good feeling has been growing – I was surprised to see my face on the front of the herald – pleased to give cake to the staff in the pub who have been amazing, cheered by the drinks and offers of food. Tomorrow is a day off but I’ll be praying for sunny Saturday – praying for God to do something big and something new.
