we come afraid

i’m writing less here at the moment, partly because i’m working on things that aren’t mine to publish, but also because i’m trying to write more intentionally and deliberately, rather than just spout things off the top of my head. that doesn’t suit a blog format quite as well. the world has more words than it needs at the moment, it feels good to limit the amount one adds to them…

a call to worship, based on mark 1:21-28

we come afraid
in search of hope that is stronger than evil

we come bewildered
in search of truth that will bring us to life

we come trusting
there is a love that will cast out our demons

holy one
in this space and moment
still the voices that betray our hopes
and calm the chaos that denies our peace

gather us into your love.
amen.
