A time to be slow

An extract from the Dean's sermon for Sunday, 22 March 2020. (Full sermon)





Finally, embrace this opportunity for a change of pace. Let’s all slow down for a bit.


With that in mind, let me close with a poem by John O’Donoghue



This is the time to be slow, Lie low to the wall Until the bitter weather passes.


Try, as best you can, not to let The wire brush of doubt Scrape from your heart All sense of yourself And your hesitant light.


If you remain generous, Time will come good; And you will find your feet Again on fresh pastures of promise, Where the air will be kind And blushed with beginning.


© John O’Donohue. Excerpt from his books, To Bless the Space Between Us (US) / Benedictus (Europe). Ordering Info: https://johnodonohue.com/store
