The Way is Illuminated by Darkness

VICAR

Sadly but understandably, there was a huge fuss in January over a service at St Mary’s Episcopal in Glasgow to mark the feast of the Epiphany, during which there was a reading of a passage from the Koran which said that Jesus is not the Son of God.

I totally support Gavin Ashenden for resigning.

Where there is sound crossover between faiths people decide to follow, we should rejoice in it. Because of their upbringings or out of free choice many have chosen other faiths. This is what it is.

Which is why this week I am publishing a Sufi Prayer for Peace. Just to be reminded that there are good people out there of many faiths. If you do not believe me, go and meet them.

Have a Blessed Sunday. And be bathed in light.

Sufi Prayer for Peace

Send Thy peace, O Lord, which is perfect and everlasting,
that our souls may radiate peace.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that we may think, act,
and speak harmoniously.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that we may be contented
and thankful for Thy bountiful gifts.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that amidst our worldly strife
we may enjoy thy bliss.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that we may endure all,
tolerate all in the thought of thy grace and mercy.
Send Thy peace, O Lord, that our lives may become a
divine vision, and in Thy light all darkness may vanish.
