An Easter Communion? Come to this Table, not because you must but because you may. Come, not because you have all faith but because you have some faith and would like to grow. Come, because you love the Lord a little and would like to love him more. Come, because all is ready – and because it is Jesus who invites you! ‘Snowdrops’ - photograph by Janice Poulson The Kingdom It’s a long way off but inside it there are quite different things going on: festivals at which the poor man is king and the consumptive is healed; mirrors in which the blind look at themselves and love looks at them back; and industry is for mending the bent bones and the minds fractured by life. It’s a long way off, but to get there takes no time and admission is free, if you will purge yourself of desire, and present yourself with your need only and the simple offering of your faith, green as a leaf. R S Thomas Collected Poems 1945-1990
