This prayer is based on one I posted last year but I have added an image that has been very special to me during 2014 – a collage made by Joyce Withrow called As the Heart Sees. As I reflect on the year this is the image that comes to mind. This year has been one in which I have felt God encouraged me to listen deeply to my heart. Out of that has flowed my growing emphasis on hospitality and a desire to invite all of us to enter more fully into God’s hospitality as part of that great family that stands around the manger.
I hope to develop this even more in the coming year as we focus on reconciliation and God’s invitation to us to join together in unity and peace with all the peoples of the world.
