Anglican Rector Stephen Cherry Visits FOH

Stephen and Maggie Cherry will be with us Sunday, August 31, as a part of their visit in the area during his sabbatical leave as Canon of Durham Cathedral in England and newly appointed Dean of King’s College.

The following is from Stephen’s book Barefoot Prayers:

Breath of God
be my life this day;
be my compassion.

Breath of God,
be my connection with your
places of distress and darkness;
with your places of despair and desolation.

Breath of God,
flow where you are not expected;
flow where their is hurt and hatred.

Breath of God,
flow where life is coming to an end:
flow into the kingdom of death.

Breath of God,
flow into me, through me, from me:
as grace, as love, as Spirit, as life.

Breath of God, breath of God, breath of God,
breathe on me,
breathe with me

breathe me.
