God, we thank you for you for this time of Autumn, as September brings a new cycle of terms, seasons and courses.
A time to pause.
A time to reflect.
A time to consider what truly matters.
A time to tune in to what is really driving us.
A time to gather our strength for the winter ahead.
A time for fresh starts, leaving behind what is not good for us and embracing what is.
A time to centre ourselves on You. Your Love. Your Peace.
Draw us closer to you God. Call us closer every day. May we know this Autumn that you are the focus and anything drawing us away from that must fall away like leaves, to make way for the new shoots you promise will grow.
Oh God, for I can’t wait to see the springtime of growth after this particular autumn.
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!
