|This is what the table should look like when I take Holy Communion to somebody at home. Today I visited two homes and had forgotten to take the candles -- as I noticed after setting out the candlesticks. Candles aren't essential but it's a pity to miss out something that helps to create a special atmosphere for what can be a profound experience of the presence of divine love in the midst of everyday surroundings.|
The evening meeting of Deanery Synod also made us think about special places when the Archdeacon came to address with us the question of what makes a church building effective.
