Cause to pause

Walking from here to there causes me to pause…
and then to consider what else bids me tarry.

prayer & meditation
sunrise & sunset
starry skies & awe

children & wonder
worship
play

dis-health & disease
caring & loving
table meals & table fellowship

phone calls
letter writing
Christmas cards

births & deaths
weddings & funerals
birthdays

These in our holding.
Hold sacred space,
common ground,
between.

Here and now is.

show me…
tell me…
teach me…

I pray.

Listening Up

IMG_1781Movement is my learning language.

Stillness is my listening language.

If I don’t listen up,¬†

my next move may teach me a hard lesson.

Lord, hear our prayer

hand giving

You have given us a world of beauty, and we have spoilt it.
A world to feed us, and yet many go hungry.
A world of riches, and we are unwilling to share.
A world to care for, and we think only of ourselves.

Forgive us, gracious God,
for those times your heart is saddened by our selfishness.
For those times we have no thought of others,
no cares but ours.

Enable us to see this world anew, as a gift from you,
to be shared and nurtured.
Amen
