Thin Place

O God,
make of my heart,
and of my marriage,
and of my family,
and of my home,
and of my church,
a thin place.

(Based on an incident related to Evelyn Underhill by a friend who had been to the Isle of Iona and there heard a local gardener say, “Iona is a very thin place.” She asked, “What do you mean?” The gardener, a Scotsman, said, “It's a thin place, because there is not much between Iona and the Lord”)
