Last week I discovered the work of Michael Leunig, cartoonist, poet and writer. I quickly fell down the rabbit hole and became hooked. FuelledByTea pointed me towards Leunig’s prayers. The rabbit hole deepened. At Harvest Festival at Holy Nativity on Sunday we used this one during the service: Dear God, We rejoice and give thanks for earthworms,
I was wandering around the supermarket when I spotted this set of tea light holders. This was after I had visited The Works Publisher’s Outlet and looked at a shelf of crystal infused self help books that were anything but. We search for deeper meaning.
