Winter resources

winterSome time ago, Joy Kingsbury-Aitken wrote a prayer of thanksgiving entitled Winter’s Lessons – it may well be an appropriate time to recall that winter does have its lessons and blessings.

A Winter Prayer has been “borrowed” from Rev Kate Wilkinson, and could be useful as a prayer for others, especially those affected by the cold – the elderly and the homeless – as well as a reminder that Spring is just around the corner.

And these Prayers for others – winter time, by Hannie de Beer of Christchurch continues the themes found in the other two resources for Winter.

A Winter Prayer

winterWinter has finally arrived, and here (on the prayer resources page) is a prayer sent in by Linda Cowan – it can also be found here (amongst the seasons of the year – Winter is at the bottom of the page).


And, like bulbs, may we continue to grow and open inside, despite the cold,
Ready for the spring, to stretch and grow towards justice.
Amen.
