St Francis reprayed ...

Over at Novice Blogger my best friend Janet Lees has been writing about remembering the Bible and Vision4Life.
Meanwhile her life mate, Bob Warwicker has also started blogging again in splendid low key style - he started before any of us really, way back when he posted every day from his epic Land's End to John of Groats walk on End to End via the Margins. Bob ministers in Huddersfield.
Janet's also written this great re-working of the prayer of St Francis:

Make me a channel of your peace:
where there is chaos,
may patterns emerge;
where there are words,
sentences take shape;
where there are fragments,
stories unfold.

For it is in remembering we forget,
in forgiving we are released to forgive,
and in listening we are empowered to speak;
in fighting we discover our need of peace,
in hugging we gain courage to let go,
and in creating we set free the stuff of life.
