I was reminded of this prayer reflection by my friend Jo who sent it to me. It was originally written by Barbara Glasson, President of the Methodist Conference.
Given the negative news we have received today (12th September) about the spike in Coronavirus infections, and the importance of social distancing and wearing face masks, we need to also hold on to a bigger and more hopeful focus.
In whatever way you can, may you ponder what the words say and, despite everything, become a beacon of hope to those you have contact with.
