‘My soul is dry dust,
Choking worldly ambition
My soul is wet earth
Bearing rich fruits of grace
My soul is a flame of fire
Blazing with passionate love’
from the ‘Black Book of Carmarthen’ (Welsh: Llyfr Du Caerfyrddin), mid-13th century, thought to be the earliest surviving manuscript written solely in Welsh.

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for those making decisions that will affect our lives.
Please donate if you can!
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with Services in church cancelled, we no longer receive income from collections, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
If you would like to contribute to these reflections, please do email Katherine Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org
