In Spring 2017, the Mhinisteir and I were attending a Sunday service in a different COE . It was a joint service.
The service was conducted by a Vicar who was at that time teaching at a theological college.
It wasn’t a typical COE service. The Vicar had brought a small jar of anointing oil. He was going to anoint anyone who wished to be anointed immediately after the communion. I wasn’t going to go because I didn’t feel comfortable.
Unfortunately for me, everyone in front of me was going for the anointment and so I felt pressured to go since all eyes were on me and so I went forward to be anointed!
Until today, I still regret that decision for a few days after that, I suddenly became seriously ill with life changing consequences
I cannot help but wonder if this is the result of the oil anointment.
