“In chapel we need not choose our thoughts. The words are aligned for us to cling to.” From the TV show Call The Midwife
I am sure that some people wonder why each Sunday the liturgy is s important to us. They question the fact that each week we follow the familiar path and the familiar words. I guess they can’t see that that is the joy of it. The words provide comfort. A sense of coming home to the well loved. In that place we can rest and let go of the worries and the stresses and just let the words take us to God.
Caring God, we thank you for the comfort we receive from the words we use in each service. Help us to lean into them and clear our minds of those things that trouble us. AMEN
