A Prayer for Sunday 18th October 2020

God, there is so much sadness in the world, I thank you for times of howling laughter with my son who shares my sense of humour to the letter.

God, there is so much pain in the world, I thank you for times of gentle hugs with my daughter who shares my love of soft blankets and wrapping up in them.

God, there is so much loss in the world. I thank you for my husband who stands firm and shares my conviction and faith in you, in us and in a better way to live.

Today I am thankful.

Amen

Peace be with you

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!
