Brother Rat’s (Belated) February Report

D3BCThis month I went on a week long silent retreat with Helen in the Wairarapa. They not only did morning prayer each day but they  did evening prayer as well every day. Praying twice a day! Whatever next?

As if that wasn’’t enough, Helen took me on some expeditions as well. “Come and play with me and Jesus,” she said. I was force fed blackberries and I was made to go for a swim in the nearby creek. It was cold. Brrr. Once was enough, I flatly refused to swim again even tho’ the weather was supposed to be hot.

A dry closet for next year really is a must. Have you got one without a creek or a swimming hole in it? I’’ll bribe the judges.
