So the story goes

In the beginning, so the story goes, God began creating.
In a garden, the divine one breathed life into the adamah, the very earth.

And we became.
Praise to the creator!

We gather to remember whose breath   gives us life.
Praise to the essence!

We gather to reconnect with the essence within me, within you, and permeating all that is. Praise to the god of relationship!

Holy one, we pray, “Animate us. Touch us. Heal us. Move us to breathe deeply of your love”
“Move us to share your breath of hope and promise in a world in desperate need of you. Amen.”
