‘A PRAYER MEETING’
Prayer is a meeting. A meeting of ourselves with God, with one another, with God’s world, and with our own deepest needs and desires. And with those who have gone before. Englesea Brook is built up from the heartfelt prayers of many just as surely as it is built of wood and bricks and stone.
In this Quiet Day we shall gather ‘where prayer has been valid’, and, within music, silence and guided meditation make it our own place of meeting.
‘You are not here to verify,
Instruct yourself, or inform curiosity
Or carry report. You are here to kneel
Where prayer has been valid.’
From Little Gidding by TS Eliot
