Different adoration: Resumption of normal service (iv) 8 November 2005

Posted by Dr Moose in Uncategorized.

I’m not quite sure how they calculated it, or quite were it applies (UK/Western Europe I’d guess), but I recently heard a quote to the effect that most people spent the same amount of their lifetime praying as they did kissing.

Is that kissing when younger and being prayerful when older? 🙂

In a way the figures shouldn’t be too surprising in this unconscious symmetry. They are, after all, both methods of adoration and relationship building… (even to the extent of prayer being able to be thought of as intimate encounter with the divine).

Nevertheless as I said to the chaps in the chippy – yelling “O God” does not necessarily constitute prayer!
