God is not confined

We feel confined at times, but God is not confined

Centering Silence
I invite you now into a time of silence
(Silence)

May this time of silence together
renew our hope
refresh our courage
lift our spirits
restore us in faith.
(Silence)

how does a Tree give praise to God? simply by being a Tree

OR

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.
Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning.

JOHN O’DONOHUE
Excerpt from his books, To Bless the Space Between Us
