A People

A People

We are a people
Called to live as a people
People loved
People hoping
People cherishing
People supporting
People seeking treasure
And finding it in each neighbour’s voice

With every passing day the neighbourhood grows
Richer in colour
More vibrant
Verdant hues

Sharp contrasts aren’t smoothed
Out to grey
Instead they are held

Fingerprints of who we are
Mark shared walls and railings

In our difference
We are truly found
Brought alive

The neighbourhood sings
New songs
Songs rising up
From long-silenced hearts

The neighbourhood is alive
And we its people are united
In imagination
In longing
Held by mutuality
Connected by our breath

Breath that is not ours
But gifted
Gifted by the Three in One
Who pitches a tent
Enfolding all in love

We are
This people
A people
All people
Gathering together

Holding on to truths we
See played out each day

Envisaging a new reality taking root

Dreaming with the neighbourhood

For the flourishing of all

Frail Fractions, Disrupted By Colour and Light

I've had a music project in the background for the last 18 months or so. Called Disrupted by Colour and Light, I'm building up a set of videos and music tracks. Here's one of them. It was a rough draft so some of the screen ratio is a bit off-kilter, but it does what it needs to do. Have a look.
