Voice 9: Corinne Brown, Deacon in the York Circuit

Corinne is a probationer Deacon in the York Circuit. She lives in Haxby with her family (husband, three grown up kids. three-legged cat and a very elderly rabbit). She likes praying in different ways at all times of the day, and often uses pictures, songs and objects to help out, especially when words defy her, which (surprisingly) they often do.

Listen to Corinne’s Prayer here:

I want to kiss the world beautiful by Martyn Joseph

I want to kiss the world beautiful

I want to kiss the world fine

Shoulder to shoulder, cheek to cheek

That don’t sound much like a crime

I want to kiss the world beautiful

I have no name for this desire

I believe in light, but don’t know what to write

With the darkness drawing near

I want to kiss the world beautiful

Lay down this life I think I would

Give up my shoes and all of my views

Don’t know why just think I should

I want to kiss the world beautiful

Under the weight of all this earth

Sometimes it takes someone else’s life

To make us see what we are worth

I want to kiss the world beautiful

Dream but never fall asleep

Go up to God and say, do you have plans today?

Are you walking down my street?

I want to kiss the world beautiful

And not forget from where we came

There are losers and winners, saints and sinners

I hope we all end up the same

I want to kiss the world beautiful

I want to kiss your lips tonight

Sometimes it’s just more important to love

Than to always have it right
