“Location, location, location”


“Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.”

Luke 19 : 1-4

‘Disclosure’ by Ann Lewin

Prayer is like watching for the kingfisher.

All you can do is

Be where he is likely to appear, and wait.

Often, nothing much happens;

There is space, silence and expectancy.

No visible sign, only the

Knowledge that he’s been there

And may come again.

Seeing or not seeing cease to matter,

You have been prepared.

But when you’ve almost stopped

Expecting it, a flash of brightness

Gives encouragement.
