I also had a recent experience in my regular parish where the person who was meant to give out the hymn book to me ignored me, despite my hanging around for a while in the hope they'd notice me, and I ended up without a hymnbook, because I didn't...

It is not that I don't think God has a plan for me, I certainly believe that, but most of the time, I wonder if he could let me know what the plan is? I often find that there are patterns and deeper meanings in my life or that of others, but these...
