“Another Way of Being” (Michael Leunig)

Dear God,

We pray for another way of being: another way of knowing.  Across the difficult terrain of our existence we have attempted to build a highway and in so doing have lost our footpath.

God, lead us to our footpath: lead us there where in simplicity we may move at the speed of natural creatures and feel the earth’s love beneath our feet.

Lead us there where step-by-step we may feel the movement of creation in our hearts. And lead us there where side-by-side we may feel the embrace of the common soul. Nothing can be loved at speed.

God lead us to the slow path; to the joyous insights of the pilgrim; another way of knowing; another way of being.

Amen.
