• Trinity of parts which form the helix of our DNA

  • Dance us out of complacency...

  • Spiral dance us, koru-like

Prayers for Trinity Sunday

Reflection theme: The Never Ending Dance of Love

Spirit of Truth

Spirit of Mystery

Spirit of Relationship

 

Spiral dance us, koru-like;

Release our thread-like, heart-shaped spores

to ground and spread, regenerate and grow.

 

Threefold mystery, found and sought,

we bring our questions and doubts

our fears and uncertainties

our hopes and dreams of a better world and healed lives.

 

Triple Spiral: womb, fertility, rebirth

Spiral as large as a galaxy

 

We think of those whose lives and communities are torn apart

by violence, poverty, famine and war;

for the families and lovers of the missing—the runaways, the homeless, the trafficked;

those lost in plane crashes and at sea;

we think of those infected by and terrified by the Zika virus

and other immunity attacking diseases.

 

Trinity of parts which form the helix of our DNA

we hold in our hearts those closest to us

who twine themselves around our lives

giving us purpose and worry and joy.

 

We give thanks for the gift of being loved,

the responsibility of loving.

 

Eternal, regenerating circle

Dance us out of complacency

into the whirl of lives in the Beloved Community of Resistance

the never-ending dance of the Jesus Way.
