Reflection for 5th August 2012

Prayers for a journey (adapted from Psalm 139)

Time to go.
Go out,
Go home,
go away.
Reluctant or eager,
Fearful or full of hope,
It’s time to go.

The Spirit of the Way,
May we carry with us
…..oil of kindness for bitter partings
…..salt of courage for uphill struggles
…..spice of delight for new surroundings
…..water of refreshment for parched imaginations
And sweet grace to surrender all we cannot finish
Into other hands.

Time to go.

Kathy Galloway, from “Talking to the Bones” SPCK 1996
