Praying Is Like Sunbathing

I saw this quote on another blog and loved it. Let me know what you think!

I like this quote by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Any thoughts?

Dr Rowan Williams said many people had difficulty praying and felt it was a matter of “generally getting your act together” and finding acceptable things to say.

But they should compare the experience to lying on the beach or under a sun lamp, he said.

He explained: “When you’re lying on the beach or under the lamp, something is happening, something that has nothing to do with how you feel or how hard you’re trying.

“You’re not going to get a better tan by screwing up your eyes and
concentrating. You give the time, and that’s it.

“All you have to do is turn up. And then things change, at their own pace. You simply have to be there where the light can get at you.” Pin It
