I was at St Boniface on Sunday leading Satellite worship, and afterwards as we put away wires and equipment, our friendly neighbourhood electrician said to me ‘see that multi-socket over there, the one for six plugs? It makes me so happy.’
I stared at it. It looked a perfectly normal socket to me. ‘What makes you happy about it?’
‘We had winter night shelter here for the homeless last night, and I was able to say to them “look boys, you can all recharge your mobiles here.” It was so satisfying to help them like that.’
What a brilliant diaconal spirit – serving through little things that make a real difference.
