“PAUSING AT THE WELL”
A DAY EXPLORING DIFFERENT WAYS OF PRAYING
SATURDAY OCTOBER 16TH 2010
“Most of us WANT to pray, and all of us INTEND to pray, but so often we don't get around to it! So “Pausing at the Well” is an opportunity to turn our sincere desire into action. Just like the woman of Samaria who meets Jesus at the Well (John 4) we can put down our daily tasks for a few hours and pause to listen to his voice, as she did.”
(Bishop John Flack)
