The Church That Gives Blessings

As I was returning a book to the library in a club that I belong to, the librarian saw me and asked me a question. She knew vaguely where my parish was located and she asked, “Is your church the one that gives blessings?”

Apparently, the librarian had been walking by the church one morning and seen our Associate Rector on the steps, offering to pray with passers-by if they desired. Each time Adrian has done this, a dozen or more people have stopped. I urged the librarian to get in line if she needed a prayer sometime.

I can’t imagine any better nickname than “the Church that gives blessings.” —J. Douglas Ousley
