In the midst of our everyday.Winter

In the midst of our everyday

we are faced with choices and possibilities.

Creativity and hope are bubbling, birthing within us.

Each day brings opportunities to lift us,

to challenge us,

to fascinate us…

our minds,

our relationships,

our bodies.

May we strive to see beyond our limitations.

May that which lies waiting in our hearts

come to birth within and through us.

May we live into each new day the fullness of each possibility…


During this time called Winter

leaves are gone from our trees,

winds chill each morning sunrise,

colours have faded from our gardens.

Yet we also sense that this time called Winter

is also a time of mystery, for it speaks

of the unknown, the unseen.

May we experience during this season, times

when we need to be silent and when to listen.

May each Winter day surprise us again and again.

And as Spring follows Winter, may the beginnings

and dreams planted at this time,

come to new promise even in the midst

of change and loss


As we reflect on the issues of this day in our wider world

may we honour the many ways in which

our sisters and brothers in many places

weave healing and hope into the world.

Together, may our common desires for peace

create within us the courage and opportunity

to work together toward such peace.


This is our prayer.

May it be so.
