A Prayer for Sunday 10th January 2021

What a messy world we live in God. Yet as the snow falls, what beauty I see.

As we reflect on a week of violence, shocked by scenes of terrorism, angered that it has not been called out as such, and dismayed at the injustice our brothers and sisters arrested under the banner of Black Lives Matter see, we invite you to bring beauty into the mess.

As we watch rising Covid infection rates, mourn far too many deaths and deeply miss our loved ones we are restricted from seeing, we invite you to bring beauty into the mess.

As we face more lockdown, more household juggling, more homeschooling, homeworking, home confinement, we invite you to bring beauty into the mess.

May we always look to the beauty, even in the messiest of situations. For their will always be beauty. There will always be you.

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!
