A Prayer by Desmond Tutu

Disturb us, O Lord

when we are too well-pleased with ourselves
when our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little, because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, O Lord

when with the abundance of things we possess,
we have lost our thirst for the water of life
when, having fallen in love with time,
we have ceased to dream of eternity
and in our efforts to build a new earth,
we have allowed our vision of Heaven to grow dim.

Stir us, O Lord

to dare more boldly, to venture into wider seas
where storms show Thy mastery,
where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.

In the name of Him who pushed back the horizons of our hopes
and invited the brave to follow.

(From Church Then and Now by Kurt)

Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

I seldom drop comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here "A Prayer by Desmond Tutu".
And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of
the comments appear like they are left by brain dead visitors?

:-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to
keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your social pages like your
Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Please let me know if you're looking for a writer for your blog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd love to write some content for your blog
in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested.
Thank you!
