Thought for the day, Wednesday 12th October

“View the starry realm of heaven,
shining distant empires sing.
Skysong of celestial children
turns each winter into spring.

Great you are, beyond conception,
God of gods and God of stars.
My soul soars with your perception,
I escape from prison bars.

You, the one within, all forming
in my heart and mind and breath,
you my guide through hate’s fierce storming,
courage in both life and death.

Life is yours, in you I prosper,
seed will come to fruit I know.
Trust that after winter’s snowfall
walls will melt and truth will flow.”

Norbert Fabián Čapek, founder of the Unitarian Church in Prague, who was gassed in the concentration camp at Dachau on this day in 1942
