‘I need a piss’. That’s how he greeted me. Up from my chair I’d gone over to help him. Really, I just wanted him to shut up and stop disturbing the church service. Secondly, I wanted to help this poor, vagrant man who’d rocked up at the ‘house of God’ on Sunday. Third, I was semi-curiously, judgementally pious. It’s not appropriate to reveal his name, even for the benefit of this story – because… I don’t actually remember it – a memory slip linked to points one and three above. Hopefully I loved. God only knows.

- Don’t stay sitting, even when you’re meant to stay sitting.
- Hold church in any place you can, if necessary use a church.
- Go to church unless you can’t, and go with church to those who can’t.
