Lindisfarne

Those whose faces are turned always towards the sun’s rising see the living light on its path approaching, as over the glittering sea, where tides rising and falling the sea beasts bask, on the Isles of Farne Aidan and Cuthbert saw God’s feet walking each day towards all who on the world’s shores await his coming. That we too, hand in hand, have received unending morning.
