Dead Man Waiting theme 4

Theme 4:

Bible reading: John 16:7

Spoken Meditation:

The world is too tired from waiting
too empty from crying
too lost from wondering
too bereft for comfort
too angry for peace
too lonely for hope

We pray for all those who feel as though they are living permanently in Easter Saturday.

If there were any time when the world needed your Spirit,
this is it.

Response space:

We placed a dish of barbed wire crosses on a table by the blocks of ice in the centre installation.

Who are those in the world that you know are living in the depths of hell?

Write their names into the ice with the barbed wire.
