    A new look at an old Prayer

    My former Episcopal priest gave us this translation of the Lord's Prayer.

    O Birther, Father-Mother of the Cosmos,
    Focus your light within us - make it useful:
    Create your reign of unity now -
    Your one desire then acts with ours,
    as in all light, so in all forms.
    Grant what we need each day in bread and insight.
    Loose the cords of mistake binding us,
    As we release the strands we hold of other's guilt.
    Don't let surface things delude us,
    But free us from what holds us back.
    From you is born all ruling will,
    The power and the life to do,
    The song that beautifies all,
    From age to age it renew.
    Truly, power to these statements -
    May they be the ground from which all my actions grow.
    Amen.


    From Prayers of the Cosmos: Meditations on the Aramaic Words of Jesus. by Neil Douglas-Koltz.

    I've been going through boxes, organizing and throwing away. I found it and wanted to share it right away.

    Our priest was the best. The church was filled with self-described 'recovering' members of different sects/religions. That was the only time my husband went to church.
