Words of Light and Hope from Tony Hawes
Be silent, be still.
Alone. Empty before your God.
Say nothing. Ask nothing.
Be silent. Be still.
Let your God look upon you.
That is all.
God knows. God understands.
God loves you with an enormous love.
God only wants to look upon you with love.
Quiet… Still… Be…
Let your God – Love……
Betty Halse, The Julian Meetings
Take time to think
it is the source of power.
Take time to play
it is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read
it is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to pray
it is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to love and be loved
it is a God given privilege.
Take time to be friendly
it is the road to happiness.
Take time to laugh
it is the music of the soul.
Take time to give
it is too short a day to be selfish.

We thank you for all your unsearchable riches,
which pour forth from you as light from the sun,
in boundless profusion and generosity,
whether received, ignored or rejected.
And now we offer to you, in so far as we are able,
as an emptiness to be filled with your Divine Fullness,
our selves, our souls and bodies, all that we are,
all that we have, and all that we do. Amen.
The Fellowship of Contemplative Prayer
