Blessing phones, pdas and laptops. Ixplora
A VICAR has launched a bizarre bid to attract city workers to his church by offering to BLESS their mobile phones and laptops.The Rev David Parrott issued his first blessing over a heap of high-tech laptops and smart phones on the altar of London’s 17th Century St Lawrence Jewry church today.
Perhaps I’m being cynical but this does sound to me like the encroachment of trendyism into the church. Surely this disrespects the whole concept of christian worship?
