It Came

This little volume arrived in our lobby the other day:


I just love everything in this book. It is a collection of prayers and poems by an Australian comic artist. Every one is so freshly tender, each opens up your understanding in small and profound ways. Thank you ju for sharing the tiny bell poem.
God help us
If our world should grow dark;
And there is no way of seeing or knowing.
Grant us courage and trust
To touch and be touched
To find our way onwards
By feeling.
Amen

(Michael Leunig)
