Markings 22

September 5, 2017

Give me a candle of the Spirit, O God, as I go down into the deeps of my being. Show me the hidden things, the creatures of my dreams, the storehouse of forgotten memories and hurts. Take me down to the spring of my life, and tell me my nature and my name. Give me freedom to grow; so that I may become that self, the seed of which you planted in me at my making. Out of the deep I cry to you, O God. Amen.

George Appleton 

George Appleton CMG, MBE (20 February 1902 – 28 August 1993) was an Anglican bishop in the third quarter of the twentieth century and a writer.
