I was at the prayer vigil outside the abortion clinic this morning. It was snowing and rather cold. A young man who joined us offered me his hat, pointing out that his overcoat had an hood, unlike my bomber jacket. I politely declined, despite his insistence.
Perhaps he had not read in 1 Corinthians 11 that Paul instructs men to pray with an uncovered head.
In case any one thinks I'm boasting about my powers of endurance, I will say I left the vigil a lot earlier than the others. I only stayed for just over an hour.
