Every day is a new day; every day offers the opportunity for a new beginning – and this is especially true of the life of faith. However long we have ‘been at it’, a new day gives us the opportunity to consider what has been and to start afresh, inspired by the love that is God.
What lies ahead may prove challenging and painful, or may prove a source of refreshment for us and others. What lies ahead does not matter so much as that the opportunity for the new day is there, and we have the opportunity to commit to living it well.
The ‘Sea Interludes’ of Benjamin Britten’s opera Peter Grimes surround the turbulence of the action. They begin gently and simply with Dawn.
Enjoy and consider the day, the week, ahead, and what – in Christ – you can bring to it…
