Thought for today

Weeping God,

you came to share our lives,

and still you share the vulnerability,

the suffering and desolation

of human beings in the land

that we call Holy,

and in many other places

made holy by your presence.


May we recognise your presence

amid each mess we’ve made;

give us your painful blessing of tears

for all we’ve done

and all we cannot prevent.

In the salt of tears

may we taste our common humanity;

and, through them, help us to see

the way that leads to peace.


Jan Sutch Pickard, from Iona Dawn
