Prayers of grief and rebirth

We give thanks for those who care for us

in our dark times

in our lighter times


We give thanks for all healers –

professionals and volunteers –

therapists, practitioners and friends;

Thanks to those for whom the hardest thing to do

is realise sometimes you can do nothing

except be there...


and that may the richest gift

a gift we all can offer:

treading lightly, living thoughtfully, forgiving ourselves and others,

celebrating the Christlife in us,

in our communities and on the sacred earth.
