In a world that’s very self-focused (and yes, yesterday I just did a load of stuff for myself, barely touched the digital space, and went to bed early… (yes)today’s poem calls us to care…
So make in us a heart that cares:
rages in concert with others.
Make in us a heart that
saves the suffering from
the loneliness of natural life.
Yesterday I took place is #FastApril4th. It was surprisingly hard, by lunchtime I could feel that it was affecting my thinking, etc. Like sleeping in Winchester Cathedral in aid of homelessness the other year – neither of these 1-go-statement-days comes anywhere near to what it’s like to cope with this day-to-day, but it certainly opens the eyes to the realities… especially when many of those having to choose whether to ‘heat or eat’ are working, and struggling to focus and concentrate…
#Do1NiceThing: Pay for the drink of the person behind you in a coffee shop // I did look at this and think in a modern coffee shop, might have trouble with this – so many variations! But still, the idea = ace!
Ha, I am so much a ‘doer’ … love this bit from today’s ‘Giving it up’
To Peter it didn’t come naturally to pause, listen, wait, think or worship. The presence of God made him want to act – to make things bette, make the place suitable for the presence of God, change the world, change people’s minds.
