Much is done in the name of God.
War, violence, oppression, denial, betrayal…
For the sake of our very souls,
may we hear God call us by name.
For our own sake, for the sake of
peace, justice, vulnerability, truth, mercy, love.

“You follow Christ through keening wind and wave,
To be and bear with him where all is borne;
The heart of heaven, in your Inner Farne”¬† – words from Malcolm Guite’s sonnet for St Cuthbert http://malcolmguite.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/cuddy-a-sonnet-for-st-cuthbert/
