Pre-meeting text Is it time to pause the picture, freeze the frame until we learn. Listen more to one another, as we focus to discern differences of our perspectives, how our neighbours live and grow, till in Christian understanding, Jesus’ love begins to show? Accidents of birth have placed us into poverty or wealth, having access to possessions, bringing peace? Destroying health? When will humans learn together how to meet our common need? How to live with one another, nurture love, that precious seed. God enable us to treasure those with whom we share this earth, those whose lives are marked by difference, yet who share our human birth; bring a clearer understanding of the planet that we share, till we grasp the trust that’s given, measured out for all to care.

Yet removed and isolated we have not been stewards of faith, as we pray with understanding may we channel active grace. May our prayer inspire our actions, not just words or empty rhyme, all our lives are interactive, interwoven threads in time. With a common understanding sisters, brothers work as one, reap the value of creation as our time on earth is run.
