New Zealand artists: personal photographs of work clockwise from top left by Bing Dawe, Lisa Benson, Francis Upritchard and Gretchen Albrecht.

We give thanks for artists and makers
for the ways they provoke our imagination
for the truths they tell
and their invitations to us to see things in new ways.
Nourish them with your creativity,
bless them with vision and perseverance,
and make us people
who are willing to be challenged and changed
by the truth and beauty
of their work.  Amen.

 

Jemma Allen lives in New Zealand where she serves as Priest Associate at All Saints Anglican Church in Howick, Auckland.  She blogs infrequently as she is currently writing a dissertation about contemplative practices and counselling, and has a small private practice where she offers counselling, spiritual direction and ministry supervision.
