A little bit of humour from The Church Times - 

Tuesday 9th June

He (Bob Geldof) is a lot like St Vincent de Paul, who could have had a great career in the church but chose to do Christ's work instead.

Clive James, social commentator.

Psalm 23 – an interpretation

This I know:

My life is in Your hands,

I have nothing to fear.


I stop,

breathe,

listen.


Beneath the whirl of what is,

is a deep-down quiet place.

You beckon me to tarry there.


This is the place

where unnamed hungers

are fed, the place

of clear water,

of refreshment.


My senses stilled,

I drink deeply

at home

in timeless territory.


In peril, I remember:

Death’s dark vale holds no menace.

I lean into you;

Your eternal presence comforts me.

I am held tenderly.


In the midst of all that troubles,

that threatens and diminishes,

You set abundance before me.

You lift my head; my vision clears.

The blessing cup overflows.


This I know:

You are my home and my hope,

my strength and my solace

and so shall You ever be.


This is an interpretation of Psalm 23 by Carla A Gross-Miller. 

Her book is Psalms Redux: Poems and Prayers published by Canterbury Press UK.
