CF001079_smallCF001084_smallCF001089_smallCF001094_smallCF001097_small

For everyone born, a place at the table,

For everyone born, clean water and bread,

A shelter, a space, a safe place for growing,

For everyone born, a star overhead.

 

For woman and man, a place at the table,

Revising the roles, deciding the share,

With wisdom and grace, dividing the power,

For woman and man, a system that’s fair.

 

CHORUS

And God will delight when we are creators

of justice and joy, justice and joy

yes, God will delight when we are creators

of justice and joy, compassion and peace.

 

For young and for old, a place at the table,

a voice to be heard, a part in the song,

the hands of a child in hands kind and wrinkled,

for young and for old, the right to belong.

 

For everyone born, a place at the table,

to live without fear, and simply to be,

to work, to speak out, to witness and worship,

for everyone born, the right to be free.

 

And God will delight when we are creators

of justice and joy, justice and joy

yes, God will delight when we are creators

of justice and joy, compassion and peace.

(Shirley Erena Murray)

Listening to Fragility

poster-urzula

This week we will listen to the fragility of the environment and the world we live in. We will listen to, experience and embrace our own inner fragility and vulnerability in a slow-paced and mind-stimulating setting. Sculptures and other art will be used (yet not created) by the participants to help to reveal a “you” which is a perfect imperfection; someone who is truly loved by God.

Led by theologian and artist Urzula Glienecke, PhD. Musician – Isobel Jenkins.

Safe as Houses

Ursula Glienecke Safe

Safe as Houses

… an English saying indicating perfect certainty and safety when in doubt.

How many people in this world are dreaming of safety?

How many are aching for just one good night’s sleep? Numerous people suffer from insomnia which is either stress or trauma induced.

How wonderful it would be to sleep peacefully and in safety just once…

A see-through, almost invisible form of a house creates an illusion of an enclosed place, of safety and protection.

The Methacrylate suggests a dream-like quality of the space. In the middle a transparent, insubstantial figure is sleeping deeply.

Is she dreaming of safety?

Is she protecting herself?

Is someone protecting her?

Or is she just a dream herself?
