Gracious God, persevering through the years, persevering to the end,


As we face the future as a community of your people in this place,

May it be these – may it be You –

For whom we yearn in every season.

May it be your words of life for which we listen, and by which alone we live.


Wind of God –

The Shepherd's Hut by Tim Winton
"This is an early call but “The Shepherd’s Hut” will probably be my Book of the Year. It has everything I love about Tim Winton. There were his respectful descriptions of the harsh, relentless West Australian landscape. There were times when I was..." Read more of this review »

Henry James
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady

Kakuzō Okakura
“Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life.”
Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea

Jasper Fforde
“If the real world were a book, it would never find a publisher. Overlong, detailed to the point of distraction-and ultimately, without a major resolution.”
Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

Colum McCann
“What Corrigan wanted was a fully believable God, one you could find
in the grime of the everyday...he consoled himself with the fact that, in the real world, when he looked closely into the darkness he might find the presence of a light, damaged and bruised, but a little light all the same. He wanted, quite simply, for the world to be a better place, and he was in the habit of hoping for it.”
Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin

W.C. Fields
“It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.”
