New thing

Hi friends

Just to let you know

I've added a new link list in the side-bar (the column on the right hand side of my blog), called "To join in with prayer online".

The links there all take you out to sites offering opportunities to join in worship. It's worth having a look through to see what you like, because they aren't all the same thing. 

A couple of the monastic ones have a permanent live webcam in their chapel, so even if there isn't a service on you can see whoever comes through — like a monk finding the page in the breviary, for instance — or just the darkness if its the middle of the night and they've turned the lights off.

The Thomas Merton ones are YouTube videos, and when you get to the page you select the video you want to watch.

The New Pilgrim Path site has lots of links to other sites, rather than itself being a place to pray.

Canon Williams prays the office is him in his study doing exactly that live-streamed on Facebook, twice a day for Morning and Evening Prayer — but it's on US time, so I haven't managed to connect with it yet because I'm always doing something else by the time he thinks it must be the morning.

The Pope has his own daily prayer site, called Click To Pray, and the equally catchily named Pray As You Go is one friends have recommended.

Anyway, see what you think. Let me know if you especially like or don't like any, or if you can recommend some I've missed — I'll add them in.

To find the list, scroll down past the pics of my book covers and the list of my published work, and the new link list is the first thing you get to after those.

Thank you. Have loved exploring these sites. Just have to remember to listen. Watched a man putting out chairs for the Christmas services on one of them. The French monastery looks just beautiful.

Hi Patricia — yes, I like the monastic sites especially.
