Saw a group of parishioners holding “Free Prayers” signs outside a church, lining the road. I’d never seen this before. Must have been 40 to 50 people gathered on a Saturday evening, trying to attract those who might not otherwise make that call.
Nice that they share a common belief, to the degree of actually showing that type of dedication to it. And wonderfully inspiring to someone who might happen upon that stretch of road at that exact time of day, who happens to be in serious need of a better line of support. Who can possibly disparage that? I felt it heart-warming that they were all there together in this way, and that anyone who plays down their effort or takes a dim view of it has his/her own problems to deal with. Those are the people who could usually use guidance the most, though they’d never publicly admit the insecurity.
The thought crossed my mind for a brief moment — pulling into the parking lot — but I feared they might drag me out of the car and beat me to death.
