Trees Without Masks
TREES WITHOUT MASKS
Following the success of Michael McGirrs' Trees in Solitude, Prayers and Images for Pentecost, we are pleased to present a second ‘Trees’ series from Michael, Trees Without Masks.
Over the coming weeks we will share these beautiful prayers and images. Below is his third prayer.
Loving God, we thank you for the gift of new growth.
For the people who never give up.
For the ones who look after the sick.
For those who insist that black lives matter.
For those who bring food to those who can’t leave home.
They are all like saplings, small plants that point to a bigger future.
We thank you for the call to new growth in our own lives,
To new commitment, to fresh honesty, to deeper love.
Be with us as we begin to branch out.
Make us stronger.

DOORWAYS INTO HOPE AND JOY AT ADVENT & CHRISTMAS
Michael McGirr has taken the idea of the perennial favourite – the Advent calendar – and created a book where each day of Advent reveals a different doorway into the world around us. Accompanying each beautiful image is a scripture prompt and reflection that inspires readers to consider the many different doorways through which God can come into their lives.
