This is the place....

This poem was read at the vigil for Manchester:

I was reminded of this prayer:

This is the place
and this is the time;
here and now,
God waits
to break into our experience:
to change our minds,
to change our lives,
to change our ways;
to make us see the world
and the whole of life
in a new light:
to fill us with hope,
joy and certainty
for the future.
This is the place
as are all places;
this is the time
as are all times.
Here and now
let us praise God.


I'm not sufficiently insensitive or crass (I hope) as to suggest that this prayer fits the Manchester situation.  But what it does do, which is important, is to speak hope, love, determination and openness to God's transforming presence in all places, all times.

Wherever we are, however we feel, this is place, and this is a time for people of faith to live the words we profess.
