Maker of the universe:
ordering the chaos,
painting rainbows,
sculpting outcrops,
planting forests,
spinning the atoms.

Prophet of the kingdom:
embracing outcasts,
telling stories,
washing feet,
bearing sins,
sharing our load.

Guide upon our journey:
renewing the world,
calling the faithful,
bestowing gifts,
expanding minds,
joining hearts.

God who is here.
