Liturgy: God's joy at the heart of all things




Leader:In the corncrake’s rasp and the skylark’s song:

All: God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the gap-toothed grin of a mischievous child:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the tantalising smell of freshly baked bread:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the starlit splendour of the winter sky:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the satisfying squelch of a muddy walk:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the ladybird’s flight and the puffin’s waddle:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the sharing of stories and sipping of beer:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

In the windswept hair of a highland cow:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

When children are able to be children:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

When adults become like children again:

God’s joy at the heart of all things

(Written on Iona with guests)


Blessing:

May God the Creator who made heaven and earth bless us with creativity and wonder.

May Jesus who walked through fields and cities bless us with kind hands and listening ears. May the Holy Spirit who is around us and within us bless us with the courage to be caring and just.

May we work and walk in the strong love of the Trinity all our nights and days. Amen.
