    I attended St Alban’s today, 12-4-13 @ about 2.30.
    Ithought it would be lovely to spend some time praying in the church I was a member of in the 1970’s.
    I decided to read Evening Prayer so looked for a Prayer book which I found.
    Unfortunately I could not find a Bible to read the lessons. The Flower lady could not help and even seemed surprised anyone would ask for a Bible in a Church!
    I carry the Lectionary with me in my diary but do not carry Prayer book or Bible.
    It seems really strange to me that visitors are not encouraged to read the Word of God and maybe communicate with God via it.
    I do expect to find both in a Church.
