Transforming us and the world, watercolour on cotton rag

Day 22

And so we sing of God the Spirit,
  who from the beginning has swept over the face of creation,
  animating all energy and matter
  and moving in the human heart.

We sing of God the Spirit,
      faithful and untameable,
      who is creatively and redemptively active in the world.

The Spirit challenges us to celebrate the holy
       not only in what is familiar,
       but also in that which seems foreign. 

We sing of the Spirit,
       who speaks our prayers of deepest longing
       and enfolds our concerns and confessions,
       transforming us and the world.


How have you felt God the Spirit moving in your human heart?What does “untameable” mean?
When have you experienced the holy in “that which seems foreign”?
What are your deepest longings?
For what transformation are you praying? In yourself? In the world?
