the wilderness thing was universally declared to be too black for the occasion, which is apparently being advertised as a celebration [ok, so i only showed it to two people – and you], so this is the rewrite… to be used over a clip from Rabbit Proof Fence where Daisy and Grace are walking through the salt pan… and can i just say that the thing i hate with a passion about wordpress is its inability to hold format… you’ll just have to imagine poetic spacing between lines and paragraphs…
it comes straight after reading Isaiah 43:18-22
The promise echoes through history
whispered by angels and shouted by prophets
But did they know how dry this desert could be?
How do we hold faith
when the cracks in our reality are deeper than ever before
when the pressures add up relentlessly
You are making all things new?
We are trying to hold faith.
We need a glimpse, God
something to carry us beyond what we know
So we pray
with no faith
and with all faith
give us eyes to see
faith to believe
courage to live
