Friendly Readings

The service at Jean's church followed a liturgical framework. After the first hymn, there were prayers, and then an Old Testament scripture, a reading from the New Testament, and then the Friendly Reading which presented the theme of the bible readings in a contemporary more personal way.
Jean often wrote these on Tooting Bec Common sitting by a pond full of ducks and swans. This was a favourite prayer place. The term Friendly Reading was coined because of the human, everyday feel of the writing.
