Growing Spiritually

Saturday 5th March

I visited the back table at church to pick up one of the resources that we have supplied for Lent. But when I got there the table was bare and all that was left was a prayer card.

O God, who alone brings growth to your church, send your Holy Spirit to give the vision to our planning, wisdom to our actions and power to our witness. Help a church to grow in numbers, commitment to you and service to our local community, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I am glad that the resources are in people’s homes and hands and minds and hearts

I think tonight I may dream well.

It is late and I lay in bed. Reading my latest book is like wading through an ankle deep trough of black treacle. I haven’t got ear- phones to watch something on catchup without disturbing the Missus’ slumber. Yet I am not quite ready to nod as my head is full of sweetie mice Zumbaing for all they are worth.

But their rhythm is the sort of alchemy that will create visions. Some are no doubt deep rooted and probably Freudian or just weird. Some will unravel the day’s events and may contain answers. Yet others may just be satisfyingly refreshing ‘there’ and like a good BBC repeat worth visiting more than once during the night.

As we often say as the duvet magnifies our comfort. “Isn’t bed brill!”

Let the alchemy commence.
