Give us the mind of Jesus, something of his brave heart, as we sail over the waters of experience. And days of sunshine. And favouring winds. And stars to be our guide when the sun is set. Yet this is but half our asking. Lord of pity, when trouble rises, as a storm, turning our trust to fear, bring us into the quiet place of thy presence and be our haven. From Hebridean Altars by Alistair Maclean. Wherever we are, let us follow the guidance of a star as surely as the fisherman away up in the islands. Let us pray for the grace to be quiet in God's haven, letting him turn our fears into trust.
6 March, Lenten Pilgrimage III: Bring us into your haven.
