Solitary Practice

By Henry Hawthorne

The photo is taken of an organist in St Stephen Walbrook, London, practicing alone on a rainy day. The experience of faith is knitted from both communal and solitary moments. While this organist makes essential contributions to the bustle of Sunday morning congregations, it is these countless moments of solitude, of practicing alone before a rainswept window, that gives him the skill and strength to give to his community.
