Welcome back to Solace! What was intended to be a few weeks’ break may have become a few months, but this was never something I can leave entirely…
The new season of reflections will try and focus on a central theme – however tenuous! – each time, and depending on how weighty the situation feels around us all at the time I make them, may or may not be a little more topical.
This first week’s Solace includes an Examen prayer and a time of listening (there are no written instructions for the listening prayer – everything you need to know is in the audio) – but if you haven’t got access to the instructions and would like it for the Examen it is available here.
The Bible reading is taken from John 12:35, and the poem featured is ‘Choices’ by Tess Gallagher – which appears in ‘Midnight Lantern: New and Selected Poems’ published by Graywolf Press, 2011.
The music used is the track “Lunar Orbit” from the album ‘Apollo 11’ by Lee Rosevere– go explore his stuff! https://leerosevere.bandcamp.com
