Listen to Ian’s prayer for April Fools Day:
Here on the study wall my mementos, my photos, my clippings.
There a text cut out and blue-tacked years ago to encourage.
Smiling faces of degree success and old colleagues urging me to remember them on the mission field.
Gifts of gratitude and past achievements mix with to do lists and future plans.
Plants and flipcharts, email requests and winners medals.
A window onto a wider world where the birds gather briefly on the balcony to feed and fly.
And daily in the chapel the community prayer;
Leader: We proclaim:
All: Christ for All.
Leader: We live:
All: All for Christ.
