I recently heard of a wedding service that had an unusual version of the Lord’s Prayer – one that included the line, Deliver us from email.
I’d previously heard of that line being used on it’s own as the clergy’s prayer for their day off. It makes sense in that context but I’m puzzled by the wider application.
Do people generally not like receiving emails?
I find myself checking my inbox far more frequently than is actually merited in the hope of finding something of interest. I think it’s a hangover from my mum’s vigilant watch for the postman each morning and the pleasure she got from each handwritten letter from family and friends.
