    Friday 30 October 2015 – back to blogging

    A short blog tonight as I ease back into the discipline of writing after my break.  I am grateful to a local retreat house for three days of generous hospitality, of quiet places to read and think and pray and be.  I enjoyed home cooked meals, again without having to prepare or clear them away, although I probably did not walk enough to compensate for their rather delicious chocolate cake!

    Last week I found this traditional Celtic prayer in the Methodist Prayer Handbook and I leave it with you tonight.  You may be surprised to know that even I can sometimes manage – and even crave – silence!

    Weave a silence, O Lord, on to our lips;
    weave a silence into our minds;
    weave a silence within our hearts.
    Close our ears to distractions;
    Close our eyes to attractions;
    Close our hearts to temptations.  Amen.
