is unexpected. it creeps up on you when you’re not watching. it found all the four Taylors at the same time, in the same place, on Sunday morning.

we’d gone looking for a church home and five minutes into the service, we were all crying. nothing to do with the church. at ALL.

just this sudden realisation – that the songs were not Opawa songs and the people were not Opawa people. and so the tears flowed, for loss.

which is fine for us. but i couldn’t help wondering what the worship leader, what Australians in general, think of people who get all teary eyed in public places?

  1. Must have been a day for people who have been and are part of Opawa to cry in church. I did the same thing at the church I was visiting. I miss Opawa family very much. Praying for you as you settle. Love Judy More

  2. IF you can’t cry in church where can you cry?
    Good luck moving is hard physical and psychological labour. Loss is real and often the gains of moving have to be worked hard for.
    Take care

  3. And I cried a tear or two too, at Opawa, because there was a Taylor shaped gap on Sunday!!
