Yesterday in Peterborough my volunteer team of chaplains came up with an idea. To ask people to write on baubles names of those they would like us to pray for over this Christmas time. I didn’t think it would work at all to be candid about it.
An hour later, with a full bowl of prayer requests and my cynicism kicked firmly in the baubles I prayed with my team for each one of the people who had written on them. Humbling.
