New Life, renewed hope – April 27

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Faithful God, the resurrection of Your Son has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do, the will to want to do it, the courage to undertake it, the perseverance to continue to do it, and the strength to complete it.

When there is need, what we can do must not be left to another

If someone drops their books, help pick them up, not let someone else do it.

Let us live as Christ would have us live – April 20

 

Let us live today in Christ’s resurrection light.
Let us live by God’s law of love,
Extending mercy, compassion and joy.
Let us share the gifts God has given,
Practicing generosity, hospitality and love.
Let us live as Christ would have us live,
Bringing freedom, justice and hope.

The Servant Girl – April 6

She listens, listens, holding
her breath. Surely that voice
is his – the one
who had looked at her, once, across the crowd,
as no one ever had looked?
Had seen her?
Had spoken as if to her?
Surely those hands were his,
taking the platter of bread from hers just now?
Hands he’d laid on the dying and made them well?
Surely that face?
The man they’d crucified for sedition and blasphemy.
The man whose body disappeared from its tomb.
The man it was rumoured now some women had seen this morning, alive?

(The Servant-Girl at Emmaus by Denise Levertov)

Easter Prayer – April 5th

Easter Blessing

Broken the stone
of everyman’s despair
the ultimate
ice cry of defeat

Broken the stone
of the sound of groping hands
fumbling with the cords
of tears

Broken the stone
of the dark stagnant deeps
twisting the shadows
of the dead

Shattered the stone
life’s energies renewed
rising from nothingness
fullness from emptiness
the Word of the Easter tomb.

Ancilla Dent
