Here I Sit
Gracious God,

You have called my name and daily I try to follow. I am tired, Lord.

I listen to your words in Scripture. I seek you in the hustle and bustle of my day. You call me to come to you - to bring my worries, my regrets, my hopes and cares. I am tired, Lord.

You call me to come and sit with you a while - in a church, under a tree, or on a bench outdoors.

Here I sit, Lord - tired, worried, burdened and afraid.

I take a deep breath and exhale ...

Sitting here, surrounded by the quiet, I can really listen. I can reflect and contemplate.

With each breath I take in, and each beat of my heart, I feel invigorated, inspired, renewed.

Thank you for the ways that you create in me. Thank you for the gift of salvation through your Son, Jesus. And thank you for the inspiration that your Holy Spirit brings.

A seat waiting for you

We hope it won't be long before we can invite you all to make your way to The Grotto, a place of peace, prayer and natural beauty.

Until then, we have a seat waiting for you ...
