Dead Man Waiting theme 5

Theme 5:

Bible reading: John 16:7

Spoken meditation:

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

We wait here
perhaps sceptical
perhaps angry
perhaps desperate
perhaps lonely
perhaps anxious
perhaps doubting
perhaps resigned.

All we know of God is stripped away

Crucified.

And we wait.

Response space:

We placed a bowl of icecubes on a table

Take an ice cube with you …
hold it in your hand as you move on.

Carry the waiting of the world with you as you go.
