Evensong ~ November 4 ~ Remembering

Evensong – Wednesday, May 27, 2020 A door opens in the centre of our being and we seem to fall through it into the immense depths which, though they are infinite, are all accessible to us. ~ Thomas Merton Somewhere in our lives there are people…or perhaps it is we ourselves Who are here to create new visions, to dream wider dreams, to hope beyond the ordinary And to cling to very little during this time of breaking through into …
