Prayers of the People: Rainow Trinity
Let us pray for our community and our world.
O God who we create from the sum of all we know that is wonderful
generous, true and wise
Creative spirit, Ground of our Being, Christ within:
Goddess and Gaia; Cosmic parent and Pentecostal flame
may we see ourselves in the god-ness of others
and ourselves in their image of you.
Sophia Wisdom, who changes through time
who appears in different guises,
in wind and fire, in storm and in stranger
in chariots of fire
and still small voice of the desert
whose names are numerous and whose voices are many
may we hear you in canticles and ballads, workers’ songs and lullabies
see the Rainbow Evolution in diverse creatures and flourishing lives.
Oh Christ who manifests in rainbow ways,
as ancient wisdom and holy fool
as genderqueer, cis and bi, ungendered, straight: diverse and beautiful
as rabbi, story-spinner, joker and sage
Be in us as we colour outside the lines.
Be in the songs we sing
the wine we pour
the food we share.
