As shoes for your feet

In the North chapel of All Saints' something is afoot...

Sorry couldn't resist that!

This is the description of the installation.

In each of these shoes is a passage from Holy Scripture to encourage you in your prayer

As you pause at a pair of shoes, sit with them, look at them. Then spend a few minutes in silence. Then read the passage through once slowly. Pause then read it again. See if a particular word or phrase speaks to you. Spend some time in quiet prayer focussing on that word or phrase. Then read the passage through again. If another phrase strikes you repeat that process. If not, say the prayer at the end and move on.

Passages include:
Genesis 18. 1-16
Exodus 3:1-6
Deuteronomy 29 2-5
2 Samuel 2.31-37
Psalm 31:1-8
Proverbs 4 25 -27
Isaiah 52:7-8
Luke 7:36-50
Ephesians 6:10-18
and others...

My colleague tells me 4 Buddhist visitors rather appreciated it so that is good news.
