A garden with both poppies and parsley, disrupting my categories.

We praise you,
O Holy Disrupter
and Bringer of Beauty.

We praise you,
and thank you
for the life you bring us.

We praise you and thank you
and ask that your Spirit
might continue to
disrupt and disturb
our categories and order,
our ideas about who and what belongs,
our categorisation of beauty,
that we might see you and know you
at work in our world.

  1. I grow parsley with flowers. Swallowtail butterflies lay their eggs on parsley because their caterpillars feed on it. Three or four made chrysalises in my parsley last spring. So, no disruption here!


We hope you'll join the conversation!
