Conjectures of an Eclectic Christian

I recently came across a little prayer card that I collected from a visit to Launde Abbey, a conference and retreat centre located in the East Midlands. It reminded me of a place of calm beauty and welcome; it summarises a universal call for our Christian places of worship and sanctuary to be open to all, and be places of hope and renewal, whatever our circumstances:

The Launde Abbey Prayer

Father,
here may the faithful find salvation and the careless be awakened;
here may the doubting find faith and the anxious be encouraged;
here may the tempted find help and the sorrowful comfort;
here may the weary find rest and the strong be renewed;
here may we all find inspiration, and that peace which the world cannot give: your precious gift to us in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
