O Holy Spirit, giver of life and light, breath of all creatures, purifier of all souls and healer of all wounds; be fire to our heart, light to our path and friend for our journey; and this for your own love's sake. Amen. 

Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)

 

God of grace and mercy,
we acknowledge before you that which is so easily hidden,
and the struggles with those things which can imprison and
bind us:
    struggling to make ends meet;
    the challenge of finding affordable housing;
    substance abuse;
    the stress of finding a place in society again;
    damaged and broken relationships;
    mental and physical illness.

May we find sanctuary beneath your everlasting arms.
May we offer the love of Christ which sets us free,
and enables us to become the people you call us to be.
In Jesus' name. Amen.

David Hinchliffe, Channel Islands District Chair
