Only in New York

As I have noted in past posts, our associate rector and I now offer blessings on Tuesday mornings from 9 to 9:30 to anyone passing by the front steps of the church.

Last Tuesday, I was on the steps, and so many people wanted to be blessed and prayed for that there was actually a small line. It struck me later that this was typical of New York City. When people see a line outside a store or a restaurant, they are tempted to join. If it’s worth waiting for, they reason, it must be good. —J. Douglas Ousley
