I ought to be planning my Sunday School Class, but I got distracted reading "Spoken Worship" - the poetry book Bob brought back from his RUN Conference.
Two particularly caught my eye - the first one in the book "Rob's God" which you can read on Gerard Hughes' website, and another entitled "Fit me in Somewhere" which begins with these verses, and appeals to the patchworker in me!
Fit me in somewhere
in this giant jigsaw, God,
somewhere in this work of art
select a space my shape can fill
and with a puzzle maker's skill
let my contours find their fit without contortion.
in the cosmic quilt you're quilting.
Show me where my square of selfhood is of use.
Let the colourful complexities
of the pattern that is me
find their purpose in the placement that you choose.
...enough distraction, back to the story of the Philippian Jailer!
