This is the daily meditation from a few days ago in the Northumberland Community’s Celtic Daily Prayer (book two) which I have been meditating on for the last few days. I hope it encourages someone as it did me, in these strange days.
Go peaceful in gentleness through the violence of these days. Give freely. Show tenderness in all your ways.
Through darkness, in troubled times let holiness be your aim. Seek wisdom. Let faithfulness burn like a flame.
God speed you! God lead you, and keep you wrapped around His heart! May you be known by love.
Be righteous. Speak truthfully in a world of greed and lies. Show kindness. See everyone through heaven’s eyes.
God hold you, enfold you, and keep you wrapped around His heart. May you be known by love.
I’ve always been more into albums than singles; I like to listen to complete collections of music than a more radio-like random playlist. And even better if I can listen to the whole body of an artist’s work, to hear how they have developed over the years.
This week, inspired by waking up to a Led Zeppelin song on the radio, I’ve had a Led Zep-a-thon.
