On our Knees

Volunteering on the hospital chaplaincy table is not always a serious affair. On the table is my tin of sweets, which attracted a little six year old girl walking by with her mother. Because children are too small to be able to see the sweets when the tin is on the table, I lifted it down to her level. For some reason she decided to kneel while making her choice (never a quick procedure!) I therefore had to sit on the floor of the atrium while this was happening. I’m not sure what the moral is here, but if a photo was taken of the scene it could bear the title ‘Chaplaincy volunteer on her knees,’or ‘Sitting down on the job!.’

Sweet chosen, I then had to get up, not an elegant movement!
