Message for Sunday 5th July 2020
This week I mention in the reflection a book I’ve read in the past week – the Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. The author wrote the book last year – and, of course he couldn’t have known what would happen this year!
We have been forced to eliminate hurry over the past months – even if we don’t feel we hurry normally, there is hurry all around us and… we might even be ‘hurried’ mentally if not physically.
But, with so many of our normal activities curtailed because of the pandemic – we can’t hurry at the moment. We can’t simply pop to the shops, as we might need to queue. We can’t fill our diaries – even if it’s with meeting people for a coffee!
In light of the spread of the Coronavirus the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued instruction that all “public worship will have to stop”.
