November Reflection for R.E. Teachers

New Freshness


Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Living God,

You breathe in us

On all that is inadequate and fragile.


You make loving water spring even

From our hurts themselves. And

Through you, the valley of tears

Becomes a place of wellsprings.


So in an inner life

With neither beginning nor end,

Your continual presence

Makes new freshness break through. Amen.
