Praise

Praise to the creator God!
Praise to God who created,
   our earth, our hearts, &
       our souls in the divine image.

Praise to the creating God!
Praise to God who creates
     a world of love, grace, & hope
         using our hearts and hands.

Praise to the relating God!
Praise to God who lives in relationship between Parent, Child, & Spirit.

Praise to the relating God!
Praise to God who seeks us out,
   even when we turn away,
       even when we ignore,
             & hurt our earth and others.

Praise to the resurrecting God!
Praise to the God of seasons,
    the one who promises a lifetime
         of change and growth
             if we but listen and follow.

Praise to the loving God!
Praise to the God who loves us
    with a grace beyond our
         understanding.

Praise be to God!
All praises to God! Amen!
