“To be alive is to be vulnerable”

Madeleine L’Engle, American novelist

Reflect

How can the church better encourage and support people, both within and outside its doors, to enter experiences that are paradoxical and confusing?

(Allied to this question: how might we restrain the desire to make everything logical and readily accessible?)

Pray

For the family of Alan Spilsted, who died last week, following a long struggle with dementia

For all those explorers who plumb the depths of life; may their curiosity be rewarded and their courage strengthened

For the many countries around the world where the Covid-19 pandemic is not yet under control; and those countries who can’t access sufficient supplies of the vaccine

OUR PRAYER

PRAYERS FOR THE WORLD

Act

Explore further a topic that you find mysterious and confusing; try not to sort it out and allow yourself to plunge deeper into its mystery.

Ask a friend what they find mysterious.
