Turning and re-turning (on repentance…)

There are times when we need

to turn, and re-turn,

to acknowledge how we are and who we are,

flawed and fragile,

whole and (w)holy loved,

that we break and are bruised,

and we break and bruise

this world, and others

in our blinkered selfishness…

again, and again…


but we can turn,

we can re-turn,

we can retrace our steps

to our centre

where we know and are fully known,

and there,

kneeling in the dust

if necessary,

we will find ourselves embraced….


so let’s turn, to re-turn

look in the eyes of the other,

walk in the shoes of another,

wear compassion and deep love

as a protective armour

for open hearted living,

where self-giving finds itself met

in abundant living…


Let’s turn,

and turn again,

re-turning to the cosmic dance

where all are included,

all loved,

all known, all held…


let’s turn and turn ,

and re-turn again….

re-creation dances- mine

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
