Dear God, today we pray for children as we think about their willingness to trust…to trust in those who parent them and have responsibility for their wellbeing.

May we be worthy of their trust, that our children might grow in strong and healthy ways.

May we be willing to trust in your ways of love and compassion, that we might grow as your people reflecting Jesus’ love and life.


Practising trust

Make a list of the people you most trust. Those who love you just because you are you. Make another list of the people who most trust you…those whom you love just because they are who they are. Give thanks for those who you trust and for those who trust you.

Reflect on Scripture

Read the short passage below slowly, slowly, slowly, letting the words sink in and letting the images fill you, then sit quietly for a moment or two.

Hold a wondering space within you – I wonder what Spirit might be saying to me today?

It might be that as you read, a word or phrase catches your attention, or perhaps a word returns and stays with you as you sit quietly at the end. Take this word or phrase into the day with you and listen for the ways it offers connections in your living.

‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?

Matthew 6:25-27

Musing with Music

Hey Mary!

Written by Malcolm Gordon and his young son Sam, this song explores the moment when Mary meets the angel to hear the amazing news of God’s arrival in the world through her. It also wonders how God might be arriving in each neighbourhood through each of us.
