On Friday, I attended the Women 's World Day of Prayer at St John's Catholic Church at Mitcham. Usually, I find WWDP very ho-hum - as can happen when one stretches the bonds of faith across denominations and beyond everyday faith communities. I always do my best to enter into the mindspace of the women from whichever country has organised a particular year's service. I did that this year - and I found the service, given to us this year by the women of Chile, mind-blowing. So much so, that I am going to do a number of posts this week with regard to this service. If you too have attended the World Day of Prayer this year and been affected by the order of service, please join in the conversation either on the comments section of by emailing me at eaglemiss(at)gmail(dot)com.
To start with, let us look at the logo. The logo is seen in the first photo below in the pulpit piece as well as at the top of the cover of the Order of Service booklet. In the second photo, the logo is dissected and its components explained. The logo was devised by the women of Ireland - and so the Celtic Cross is included. This gladdens not only the Irish heart - but the hearts of those who, like me, consider themselves part of the great Celtic diaspora across the world. Please note St. Brigid's Cross at the end of each Desert post.
