Sample text

In the places of decisions let your kingdom be the watchword. Amen Ewan Aitken, Scotland IN GOD’S ACCOUNT In God’s account no person, creature is more precious than any other part of the wonderful creation God made right at the start. The way I speak, the way I look, the colour of my skin is perhaps the reason you keep me out. But God will keep me in. Lord, teach us to be gracious: to pronounce mercy on what we fear, to be willing to be proved wrong, to value what you hold most dear. Yvonne Morland, Scotland PRAYER OF THE PARTNER’S BELOVED O loveliest of lovers, sacred partner to all and to each!

It really is true that to love another is to touch Your face. Brother Jesus saw Your face in the face of each one of us. Help us to see his face in the face of each other so that we can bring about peace in Your world. Amen Israel Nelson, Alaska WIDE ENOUGH God of aliens and strangers: make the doors of our homes wide enough so all find a home. God of the near and far off: make our hearts wide enough so all might find a friend. God of saints and sinners: open our arms wide enough so all – the politician, the homeless man, the neighbour, the guest, the child, the widow – may be wrapped in your grace.

An artist who likes to go fishing. A young mother of one little boy. A sensitive American student. A gymnast who took her own life. A tall, spare, athletic sportsman. A young soldier, now in Iraq. God, bless and have mercy on them all. Keep them free from harm. Yvonne Morland, Scotland WITH THREADS OF LOVE New voices new stories fresh ideas fresh perspectives startling songs – awesome adventures! Each day is a sea to be surfed, a mountain to be biked, a rock to be scaled, an injustice to be challenged.
