Prayer Symbols in a Basket
As part of the District Day of Prayer and Reflection on March 6th, Rev Jacqui led a creative prayer session whereby many of the 42 online participants placed household objects in a box, basket or other container as we prayed for different subjects. The stone, or hard object, represented people who had found the pandemic hard. The torn or shredded paper or tissue represented churches that are really struggling. The paper clip and paper represented communities coming back together again. The teaspoon represented the mix of services and activities that have to be integrated as the pandemic comes to an end. The torch, or candle, represents Jesus, the light and hope of the world.
