In this video, we join in the prayer of the community at Lindisfarne on Holy Island during sunrise.
A prayer at sunrise
Weather with You The golden hour is the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset. This time of soft, warm light is cherished by photographers because the sun is lower in the sky offering natural lighting.
The time that determines dawn is measured in precise degrees. Dawn is the scientific moment when the centre of the sun’s disk is 18 degrees above the horizon. The transition to dusk is measured by the sun dipping below the horizon.
In many religions the time of dawn and dusk is a call to prayer.
I (Rev. Gail) enjoy walking the river in Stratford early in the morning, and sometimes catch the morning sunrise.
Whether you Stroll early in the morning or in the early evening, be aware of the sun and the light of this spring day.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Each Wednesday we send out an inspirational message.
