Thanks for pointing us in this direction, Jonny. It reminds me of something John Philip Newell says in his 'Rebirthing of God'
"the greatest obstacle to compassion is not hatred. It is habitual patterns of narrow self-interest. It is a way of seeing in which we pretend that we can be well simply by looking after ourselves. Or we pretend that our nation can be safe simply by focusing on the protection of our nation, even at the expense of other nations. Such patterns of narrow self-interest become the norm, accepted and sanctioned at times even by our religious traditions. We become blind to the courage to see."

Hi :)

Just wondering if I'm allowed to copy, print & use your liturgy for our own service on Sunday morning?

With many thanks.

Love & blessings, Nel


yes of course that's fine!
