Things I have seen around Aylesbury (Part Seven)
To explain what is happening in this picture the couple on the left hand side are rubbing their hands all over an elderly man, and the huddle on the right are laying a hand each on a lady in a wheelchair. The couple in the middle have just been shopping, as it's getting near christmas.
The banner proclaims 'Healing' and it would seem that a group from the Aylesbury Vineyard Church are preying on (pun intended) people in Aylesbury who they think might want some healing.
I wanted to go up to one of the church members and say something, but what would I say? "How dare you take advantage of the elderly and vulnerable and give them false hope with your superstition, why don't you go and put your energy into being some practical help to people instead?"
But of course I did not do anything of the sort, I just walked on by and went to the Kings Head for a pint.
