You created us out of the earth and your own breath.
We are made in your own image, forever connected to you.
You called us out of Egypt saving us from slavery.
We are your beloved,
always in your sights.
You brought us home from exile.
We began rebuilding the Temple.
You sent an infant of the earth and your breath to guide us when we wandered off again.
We follow the Christ who showed us how to love extravagantly.
You are with us today, transforming us and the church for a new age.
We open ourselves up to your ever-luring and always-loving spirit.
You were with us, are with us, and will be with us. You are our alpha and omega.
You are worthy to be praised! Amen!
