|08:36 pm - A quick note from an ADF Clergy Retreat|
It is when you feel least like praying that you need most to pray.
It is when you feel as if you have been gone so long from the sacrificial fire that you fear it can never be kindled again that you must strike a match and pour offerings.
It is when you have been gone so long from your fellow Druids that you fear they won't remember your name that you need most to walk up to them and open your arms.
It is when you feel you have failed your gods so deeply that they can never forgive you that it is most important to open your heart and let your voice sing strongly.
I have been shown this many times this week.

Np. The first quote isn't mine: it's from an unnamed Episcopal priest who commented on a study about clergy and prayer. The study went on to mention that it's ironic that though priests generally feel prayer is the single most important thing that they do, it's usually the first thing to be cast aside.
