Do Unto Others (as you would have them do to you)

Make a Difference in the World

 

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers,
Half-truths, superficial relationships,
So that you will live deep within your heart.

 

May God bless you with anger at injustice,
Oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you will work for justice, equity and peace.

 

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain,
Rejection, starvation and war,
So that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain to joy.

 

And may God bless you with the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you will do the things which others tell you cannot be done.

Meditation – You have not done with us yet

God of darkness… as well as God of light

Wounded God… yet healing God
When we stumble on the journey and see no hope

May we take time to walk away from what distracts us,
Take time to pause and be silent.
You were not there in the earthquake nor in the wind nor in the fire

But in the sheer silence;
It is there we meet you again.
May we go to the silence to restore our equilibrium –
To gain the strength to cast our net again as we realise
You have not done with us yet…
There is still hope.

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs

and then sings them without fear.

His voice comes through clearly,

challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,

needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.

Please God, it will help us

sing redemption songs of our own.
