Isaiah 43:19a from the NRSV: “I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”

“Behold, behold, I make all things new, beginning with you, and starting from today.
Behold, behold, I make all things new, my promise is true, for I am Christ the Lord.” (song from Iona Community, Wild Goose Resource Group)

I don’t want to be new, I want to be the me I am meant to be – though I may need new eyes to see. May those experiencing an ending today, also find the way into a new way of being themselves, as they lean into others.

Lord, in your mercy …
