O God, we’re grateful for music and art and poetry –
for creativity that lifts our spirits
and moves our souls
We’re grateful that it challenges us
and opens our eyes
and sensitizes our consciences
We’re grateful for the joy it can bring
or the storytelling it can encompass.
Creative God – giver of creative gifts that bring a deep and extra dimension to our lives
Keep us thankful and generous in our spirits
“Poetry is a human right” said a sign in Nicaragua –
so is music – so is art.
We are grateful for these gifts
that can keep our imagination alive
and our soul challenged and inspired.
Oh God, keep us sensitive and creative,
and keep us listening.
‘I remember when I was a kid seeing Garth Hewitt on stage. He was banging on about Christians having a heart for the poor and saving the world and frankly I didn’t get any of it. Garth has always been ahead of his time and we are all catching up with what God has been saying through Garth for the last 30 years. I wish I had listened closer, but it sometimes takes a lifetime to recognise a true prophet. It is people like Garth who make us look at the world differently and realise what it is to be a true Christian.’
