Cornwall Faith Forum is thinking of everyone in Cornwall.
We hope that you will all enjoy this beautiful poem by Welsh poet, R. S. Thomas. Thomas was an Anglican priest, as well as a poet. It was kindly sent to us by Richard Hopper. Thank you, Richard.
The Bright Field by R.S. Thomas
I have seen the sun break through
to illuminate a small field
for a while, and gone my way
and forgotten it. But that was the pearl
of great price, the one field that had
treasure in it. I realize now
that I must give all that I have
to possess it. Life is not hurrying
on to a receding future, nor hankering after
an imagined past. It is the turning
aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush, to a brightness
that seemed as transitory as your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you.
Next Thursday 23rd July will be meeting at Penmount again for Thursday Noon Prayers. Please note that we will meet at 10:00 am next Thursday, not at 12:00 noon.
Please contact Rita on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come.
