  • Nade Te Turbe

    PAYG today used a setting of this prayer of Theresa of Avila:

    Let nothing disturb you,

    Let nothing frighten you,

    All things are passing away,

    God never changes.

    Patience obtains all things;

    Whoever has God lacks nothing,

    God alone suffices.


    I happen to know that a few of my readers have tough times of their own just now and need the ressurance that this prayer can offer.

    PAYG used a Margaret Rizza setting but I prefer the, to me more familiar, Taize setting which you can hear, in its original langauge, here.

    There's a nice irony that St Theresa usually drived me nutty but that this prayer/meditation is one I value.


  • Kind of Odd

    An odd couple of days in prospect, mostly just sitting around and waiting, along with the last of the housework and a few adminstrative tasks.

    I now have all the comments on my MPhil work but don't have time to get it tidied and submitted before Wednesday, so it'll have to wait now until after surgery - but it will give me something to focus on then which is probably a good thing.  Given that all the other Baptist researchers I know who started around the same time have now submitted their work there is a healthy incentive to 'keep up.'

    So, it's a case of final tidying and cleaning, a few lists to be checked and a bit of stillness before the next adventure.
