Scripture
‘Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. —Hebrews 1:11

Wisdom
If you were to ask me in the busy, lighted hours of the day whether I believed in an after-life I would have to say that I am firmly neutral on the matter, with an accompanying practical sense, passed down from my father’s Yorkshire, that we will all find out soon enough. But every now and again in the deeper states of attention and letting go, necessary to the writing of good poetry, there emerges a physical sense of a deeper and surer foundation in the body and beneath even that, a voice from an inner, tidal core identity, which displays absolutely no neutrality at all.  —David Whyte, Still Possible

Prayer
God hidden and revealed, furnish a deeper and surer calm within my body and beneath even that, where your inner tidal core identity might give way. Deepen in me O God. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
