Mark 8:22-10 - A Blind Man Sees the Road Ahead

Across the Paddocks

Across the Paddocks

Poem – Clare Lind
Mark 8:35

Across the paddocks
by the willows
there’s a track.
If you take the track
the track will take you
down along the river
to where the mud gives way to the sand
and the river gives way to the sea.

And this landscape of surrender
finds an echo deep within
in the Spirit’s quiet insistence,
‘Come, give way to me.’

It’s a landscape of surrender.
If you take the track
the track will take you…
take you and remake you,
for your trust will be rewarded
and your loss will be your gain.

This conversation awaits your contribution.

We have set this website up to share the resources from the book ‘The Illustrated Gospel Project’,
plus the extra stuff that we couldn’t fit in the book.
But there is still room! Room for what you and your community of faith might create in response to God’s creative Word at work, and at play in your midst.
So if you create a drama, a song, a prayer or a responsive reading, we’d like you to share it.
