I’ve just seen the website of St. Marys, Bletchley, which has the slogan:
Following Jesus ever more closely
Just like this:
Hmm. It’s probably my warped sense of humour, but this conjured up quite an image.
Following Jesus closely…
And more closely …
And still more closely …
And … ouch!
I have this picture of Jesus, robes and all, walking down the street with a gang of anglicans jostling to follow him “ever more closely”, until one of them accidentally treads on His robe!
Which is possible not the image intended.
A worthy sentiment, but possibly in need of some rephrasing!
