Do you feel the need to pray but can’t find your voice? Sometimes words fail us when we need them most. Established prayers can feel out-of-date, irrelevant, or foreign to our spiritual beliefs.

DO YOU NEED A NEW SET OF WORDS?

In the middle of the storm of the pandemic, that’s just how the authors felt. So they decided to write for themselves the book they needed but couldn’t find.
Morning dedication. Read by Imogen Smith

I think this is exactly the kind of thing we need right now. Thoughtful, insightful, and deep.

A wound in time is a beautiful collection of prayers for the modern world. From A prayer in sickness to A blessing for technology, there are words to bring solace and inspiration to any reader particularly during these uncertain times. It is a truly beautiful read and a book that can be picked up over and over again.

I found the poems really calming and think that the words and the emotions they evoked will be of comfort to people through this time.

Gwyneth Box
Gwyneth Box
Author / Writing Mentor
Spiritually non-tribal, Gwyneth writes in many genres and is an award-winning poet. She leads workshops, mentors non-fiction writers and poets, and appears regularly at open mikes and on the radio.

Twenty one prayers, blessings and other devotional pieces that deal with global and individual concerns in the twenty-first century such as sickness, death, climate change, technology, community, self-worth and mindfulness.

Using the techniques of poetry and rhetoric, and drawing from a wide religious heritage and tradition, Lucía and Gwyneth write with simplicity, sincerity and a light touch of humour. Neopagan in origin, and suitable for all modern-day Pagans, including Druids, Pantheists, Polytheists, Wiccans, and Devotees of the Goddess, many of the pieces will also sit comfortably in Interfaith services.

The collection encompasses different perspectives and styles and uses a variety of voices to address three Divinities – Our Lady of Corona, the Weaver of Worlds (aspects of the Goddess), and the Horned God – and reflect on issues that might fall within the authority of each. The result is a compilation of themed pieces that can equally be used in personal devotions or group rituals.

The section dedicated to Our Lady of Corona offers an insight into our relationship with sickness and death, while that of the Weaver of Worlds prompts us to consider and question our attitude to others and to some of the amenities and conveniences of the modern world that we often take for granted. Finally, turning to the Horned God’s domain, we take a step back to see the bigger picture of the planet and the environment, and reflect on our relationship with it and with the others who live here.
