Let us pause to give thanks
for those things we appreciate
hold in our hearts those who need our concern.
We give thanks for sacred spaces all around us.
We seek wisdom in our decision-making.
May our liturgy—the work of the people—
be harmonious with our mission.
We who are privileged to meet
in this special place
reflect on our needs and the desires of our hearts
and realise that the miracles we seek

Bronwyn White has presented her poetry and creative writing at social events, faith community services, and in poets’ pubs and cafés. She’s currently working on a collection of Advent and Christmas liturgies, and writing contemporary hymn lyrics
