I have found this poem and prayer reproduced in a number of places in the past few days.  I hope it is OK to reproduce it here – it speaks so much of the journey of this time of year.

Into the dark world a snowdrop comes:

a blessing of hope and peace

carrying within it a green heart:

symbol of God’s renewing love.

Come to inhabit our darkness,

Lord Christ,

for dark and light are alike to you.

May nature’s white candles of hope

remind us of your birth

and lighten our journey

through Lent and beyond. Amen.

Kate McIlhagga, Iona
