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 fifth prayer.
5. THE QUIET TREE WITH A NOISY MINER
God of beauty,
We thank you for our world, especially for birds.
They go about their business and don’t seem to realise
How beautiful they are.
Jesus asked us to consider the birds of the air.
He said that they don’t sow or reap,
But that not even a king looked as majestic.
Jesus’ message was not to worry too much.
To accept each day.
To deal with its challenges honestly.
To give thanks for the gift of life in all its forms.
To get on with life whatever this day presents.
May we all take his advice!

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.
