FOR YOU – DEEP STILLNESS

For you, deep stillness of the silent inland For you, deep blue of the desert skies
For you, flame red of the rocks and stones For you, sweet water from hidden springs.

From the edges seek the heartlands
and when you're burnt by the journey may the cool winds of the hovering Spirit soothe and replenish you.

In the name of Christ, In the name of Christ

2021 - Where do we go from here?

Breezin' along in my Japanese coupe, breezin' along with the windows down. The dog keeps sniffing the air - he's got an empty head but he's alright. We've got time to spare, time to get where, we don't know, and who cares?

And the days go fast and the nights go faster
Lord, where do we go from here?
Lord, where do you want me to be? (© Robin Mann 1972)

Some questions keep on coming, and this is one of them.
The pandemic has put a hold on so much, and while Australia is in a better position than many, uncertainty remains.

Two weeks ago I  finished a song 'In the year that's coming'. It ends with:

May your love shine through us,
every day renew us,
keep on coming to us, 
stay with us
in the coming year.
