Between the years 1951 and 1956 I sat out there where you are with enough regularity that no one ever got overly concerned about my spiritual condition. Back in those days, it seems to me, there was less concern about the "spiritual condition" and more concern about chapel attendance. I think that's progress. During those years I sat out there I remembered thinking, frequently, that I did not want to be up here in the chancel-ever! - that the good place to be was out there-not up here. I was right; but as we say: That's my problem.
