Zecharaiah 12:10-11, 13:1, Ps 63, Galatians 3:26-29, Luke 9:18-24


We New Zealanders have lived through a time of severe drought. No rain. No water. Animals starving. Land burnt. We look to the skies for relief.

‘Drought’ can sometimes describe our spiritual life. Patricia Stevenson says,

“I thirst

My body aches like the parched earth without rain

Sleeplessness gives me time to recall your goodness

I need a vision to call me to persevere.”

We may look to the skies, or to creation, or to sacred texts,

or to God revealed in our fellow human beings.

We will find a vision to help us persevere.
