This section of the website is for those whose main interest is in making creative use of the written word. Inevitably there are areas of overlap, for example script-writing relates to drama, and hymn-writing relates to music. But creative writing is also an art form in its own right whether the end products are liturgies, prayers, meditations, poems or stories. Hymns and songs, ie. texts intended to be set to music, are published in the music section.
Quiet moments in your day to reflect and focus your thoughts. Meditations published here will help you to do just that. Some will be for personal use while others may be more suitable for public worship.
