NEW DAWN My Christmas message
Here is my Christmas message of hope, to my new extended family here at ‘WOL’
Although I am new here, I am not new to public speaking. In my past I have served churches and taken the service in many of them all across East Anglia.
I have also given talks, lectures and public demonstrations in halls, theatres, and public buildings.
During these occasions, I have often recited ‘New Dawn’, sometimes at the beginning of a service to use as an opening, or indeed a closing prayer. I will also often recite it at the end of an event to bring the evening to a close.
I felt it apt to post it here on the last Sunday before Christmas to my friends old and new and prehaps more importantly, to those who I have yet to meet.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all…
“In the lonely hours and minutes of uncertainty, I long to be in the warm hold of your loving mind”
I pray here on my own all alone, I’m praying for peace for us all.
I’m praying for guidance, please lend a hand.
As I listen in meditation deep, my thoughts are drowning the words that I seek.
Help me to hear with Samuel’s ear. I sense you draw near as I speak
A tear starts to fall I know you are hearing my call and can see all my pain as I weep.
The tears that are falling are bleeding from my heart, help us to understand,
and awake in the morn with a faith that’s reborn, to a wonderful bright
