Executive Director’s Update to Principals #108: COVID Update - 25 Oct 2021
God of those on the frontline,
God of the ones they must leave behind: this separation is hard enough as we’re kept from normal routines,
and interactions with friends,
the freedom to do as we please.
Especially for those who go to work
to be at risk, and stay away,
may your spirit provide what phones cannot,
what screens only attempt to project
and what pixels fail to capture.
May your spirit be known in our flesh today, so that an earthly father
might be present with his son,
and the mother on the ward
can hold tight to her child.
~ The Corrymeela Community
