Prayer for the Week: We are living complex lives in a complex world while trying to follow the simple example of Jesus who invited us to love everyone. No exceptions! Holy and Magnificent Creator, the world around us is growing more complicated, yet this amplified existence stands in opposition to your values. The poetry of the Genesis 1 story provides both a pattern and rhythmic beat to the cosmos. Day One – Life emerges, a vision is woven into the fabric of creation, a declaration of goodness is made and there is rest. Day Two – Life emerges, a vision is woven into the fabric of creation, a declaration of goodness is made and there is rest… It is as if the poet has united our breath and heartbeat to the ongoing evolution of your holy vision, bringing all into the design phase of your loving reign. Forgive us, Merciful God, when we try to portray the necessary work as beyond our capacity. Forgive us as we use the immensity of our earthly predicament as an excuse to create our own self-serving patterns, patterns that ignore the life-giving and life-transforming rhythm of your Creative Spirit. Realign us with the life of Jesus; return us to the simple and exquisite design of love; reconnect us to all life. Amen.
