So that fence analogy.

He said that Sunday worship is a like the large posts.  It keeps everything solidly grounded.

Praying the daily office is a like the smaller posts.  It provides support and guidance on a regular basis.

And the connecting beams are those quick, personal prayers that provide the continuity between everything else. 

Like so much else in my life, I’m usually only doing really well at two of the three parts.  And lately, it’s been harder.  I’ll have more to say about that later this week.  In the meantime, I keep working on it.
