For those caught up in tragedy this day -
The ongoing clearance work at the pub in Glasgow -
The train crash in New York -
And all those for whom helicopter and train accidents bring back bad memories.
For those whose faith has left them -
And those who are angry at organised religion
Hope shines through human helpers
And all who care and mourn and cry.
For all who are dealing with illness and disability -
Those who struggle to see any light -
Those with hearts full of sorrow and pain
Courage in each other and hope for tomorrow.
Light …….. Advent Light in the darkness
