From 7th December 2005, comes this poem.
We come, in Advent, looking back to see
That which gives regret, weakness, failing
Bound up within us, a threaded tapestry
We can only ask forgiveness, unveiling
The secrets of our hearts, that inner self
Often so deaf to injustice, blind to need
Here is failing, that truly to know thyself
Hunger for the right, learn also to feed
On words, opening eyes to all the sorrow
Bereavement, illness, poverty and fear
This is our prayer, for each new morrow
That eyes be opened, and ears now hear
And the Spirit come, bring hope to all
As God came as infant, once so small.
