Day Three of Lent: God is Still Creating

God is still speaking.  That is something we believe and teach.
God is still creating.  That is something we affirm daily as we live our lives in partnership with God.
If we actively respond to God's invitation to be God's partners in healing the universe, we will discover that God continually proposes new possibilities for us to embody and then responds to what we have done.  Like a good parent, God rejoices at our creativity and delights in our inventiveness.

Think about your relationship to God and how God may be leading you to act on behalf of the world around us, the Creation, and those who live on this planet with us:  Say too yourself-
God is constantly creating the universe and my life.
God and I are partners in God's new creation.
Divine creativity is revealed in some aspect of my life.
Divine creativity is revealed in a particular situation.

Think about how God's creative action is at work in you and in the world around you.

Holy Wisdom, creating all things in light, growing all things in darkness, encompass us with your creative power.  Speak within our bodies, minds and spirits.  Enlighten and enliven our hearts.  Let the glow of your holy light flow through us, bringing wholeness and enlightenment to others.  Let your divine creativity inspire us to the creation of a new and just humanity, whose works bring life to this good earth.  Amen.
