My blend

Hello everyone. Much of the news has been bad recently, so today I’m posting a more lighthearted prayer by way of compensation:


The baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God (Luke 1:35; NLT).

You are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NIV).

People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God (Luke 13:29; NIV).

I can never get away from your presence! (Psalm 139:9; NLT).

There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).


Son of Man, I am a Quaker
With a pantheistic flavour,
And a subtle Catholic influence
From youth.

I combine your Holy Scripture
With a dash of Celtic mixer,
And The Book of Common Prayer
Thrown in for truth.

I blend Buddhist meditation
With my Christian contemplation,
For both of these are simply
Wordless prayer.

So, rejoicing in your birth,
I pay homage to the earth,
And celebrate your presence
