Writing my way to an inclusive and affirming Church
A Prayer for Sunday 12th July
A slightly different prayer today. I wrote this song in half an hour yesterday morning after some quiet time with God, and then took the step of recording it this morning as my prayer. May it bless you, may you know you are not alone, may we lament together as we cry out to God for change.
I am a Music Therapist, Worship Leader and Theologian with The Ordinary Office, an online community for disabled and disenfranchised Christians. As a writer, seeker and learner, I have a special interest in music and spirituality, and I believe that Jesus’ message of love for one another supersedes religious rules and doctrines that harm. Focusing on inclusive and liberation theologies, through a lens of disability and trauma-informed approaches, I take my lived experiences and transform pain into action, living out God’s call upon my life as a ‘Twitter Mystic’ and ‘Prophetic Voice’ – although I just get on with calling things as I see them without the fancy labels, really.
I hope you find something here which interests and challenges you. Feel free to contact me for discussion any time!
