You alone, O God, are infinite in love. You alone can speak to our condition. You alone can search the mind and purify the heart. You alone can flow over our darkness with the ocean of eternal light.George Fox (1624-1691)
God, your love – gentle, immense, unconditional – arcs a rainbow of grace to shelter us all and creates a space of belonging and healing.
Your love – grounded in reality, accustomed to suffering – welcomes the excluded, tends hidden bruises, binds wounds and remakes lives and community.
God, may the astonishing truth of your love, your wide span of hope, dawn afresh in our hearts and turn us inside out as we act on your call to share your compassion.
Renew our faith and courage that we may live as people transformed by the gospel and inspired by the limitless horizons of your Spirit. Amen.Louise Gough, presbyter, Bramhall and Wythenshawe Circuit
