Bless this iPhone

The St. Lawrence Jewry church in London held a rather different “Plough Monday” blessing ceremony this week.

The tradition is so named because agricultural workers would bring a symbolic plough to the church to be blessed.

Obviously that isn’t really relevant any more, particularly not in London, where the most valuable tools of the city worker’s trade are the smartphone and laptop.

Hence the Canon David Parrott had his congregation holding up their iPhones, Blackberries and notebooks while he blessed them instead.

“May our tongues be gentle, our e-mails be simple and our websites be accessible,” he reportedly said.

He could have perhaps added a plea for the text messages we send to be comprehensible, as we comprehend those who have texted us, also.
