Just so you know, I actually love happy clappers (HC’s)*. I think it is wonderful that people have such strong faith and that they are so true to and passionate about their beliefs. Strong, pure faith always moves me, whether you are Jewish, Muslim, Christian or whatever. I think it is wonderful, admirable and it leaves me a tiny bit envious. In fact, this beautiful shining faith is something that I admire hugely in Rose, even if her faith (JW) is one that I don’t personally embrace myself. That faith shone through so strongly in our first interview and is the reason I gave her the job. I really do admire the happy clappers and Lordy types. I just love to tease sister Mel. Her and people like Tess are proof that Lordy types can be fun, funny, witty normal people.
Edited to add: I do understand that prayer is not just about asking for stuff. I know it is about listening and talking and connecting. I should have been more specific. My question is: what is the point of asking for something through prayer if the end result is predestined / preordained anyway.
