Leunig Does It Again

by Christine Sine

Australian cartoonist Michael Leunig always inspires me with his profound spiritual insights, prayers and cartoons. I thought that you might appreciate what was in a card I was given this weekend.

As a reminder of the different ways we can look at the world.

God help us to change.
To change ourselves and to change our world.
To know the need for it.
To deal with the pain of it.
To feel the joy of it.
To undertake the journey without understanding the destination.
The art of gentle revolution.

Amen.

This is soul-refreshing! I love Michael Leuing, have a couple of his prayer books.

I agree Jill. Was delighted to be given another of his books while in Australia

Leunig always manages to move me. I needed this today when the situation in Syria makes me feel utterly powerless. Other than prayer I don’t know what to do.

I know exactly what you mean Philomena and often prayers that others have written resonate more deeply than our own spontaneous prayers

Marillyn you are welcome. I think everyone needs to be introduced to Leunig
