Come to the Firelight of God

In the darkness and the cold,

people are drawn to the light

and the warmth of a fire,

welcoming, cheering and strengthening.

Just so, am I

drawn to the presence of God,

content just to be there.

Not wanting,

not pestering,

silent as I recognise the inadequacy of words,

savouring the divine presence

which enables me

to live out my faith in an often cheerless world.
