Praying on public transport

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Are your newspapers, novels and MP3 players failing in their bid to keep you sane on the morning commute? If so, help is thankfully at hand courtesy of the Rt Rev Christopher Herbert, who has compiled the book Pocket Prayers for Commuters, meaning you can now enlist God's assistance in surviving that rush hour stress. And why is the big man himself so keen to help? Well, from what the Reverend says, it's because he's stuck on that packed train with you:
"Suppose that God himself is actually present with you, waiting to be discovered - the still, small voice hidden inside all the turbulence that you and your fellow-commuters face each day? It is not a fanciful thought."
Nope, not fanciful at all...

[Thanks Christina]

Can you still get divine reception underground?

What if god was one of us? Just a slob like one of us? Just a stranger on the bus, trying to make his way home.

There is a routine behavior and observation of extreme stress and rush in morning times when you wake up for a new day.Keep a new ray of hope in yourself just get relaxed and fine in any situation.
