an advent blessing

The world has given up hoping
and maybe we have too.

In this advent
be blessed with courage to hear the call of faith –

to believe that love is being shaped right now
in the womb-space of a waiting world

and to live as though the miracle of its birth
is waiting only for our ‘yes’.

    Hi Cheryl
    I love the words of this and wonder if you would be happy if I were to use them as the final blessing in our Advent Taize Prayer service on Sunday night in Rochester cathedral?
