Pray do it this way

This article was published in November 1957. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

Eaton Bray vicar the Rev Peter Graham caused controversy when he said people could not pray properly with their bodies huddled over their knees.

He said: "The best way to say your prayers is by kneeling with your body bolt upright, or better still, to lie flat on your face."

The vicar also said the true essence of a happy married life was when a man could tell his wife how beautiful she was, and how much he loved her, when at the same time he felt like slamming the door in her face.
