Reflection 12.4.13

The Turning Dance

How much we struggle to turn, God;
Even when we feel the pain
of the road we’re on,
we find it hard to admit it,
and to change course.

But, if we will just begin to dance,
to stop our single-minded marching
and allow the voice in the wilderness
to call the tune,
our dance will turn us
from despair to hope,
from destruction to creativity,
from emptiness and death to abundant life.

And so we pray,
for the leaders and the followers to dance together
for the able and the disable to dance together
for the needy and the satisfied to dance together
for the whole and the broken to dance together
for the believer and the sceptic to dance together
for all creation and every creature to dance together
until the eternal dance turns us all
and brings us in step with you.

Amen.

~John van de Laar
