A couple of months ago I led my local SCM group in an evening about stress. We closed the workshop by listening to A Blessing For One Who Is Exhausted from John O’Donohue’s Benedictus. In this blog I’m using some of those same words to think about stress and faith.
When the rhythm of the heart becomes hectic,
Time takes on the strain until it breaks;
Then all the unattended stress falls in
On the mind like an endless, increasing weight.
