Birthing day

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.


Creating God,

make of this a birth-day,

a day of new beginnings,

day of the first Word,

before all sin or being forgiven,

new as all light,

rising dawn.


On this day, life-giving God,

birth me; set me in this world

to become more perfectly myself,

more fully who you create me to be,

an opening rose.


Make this day a day of birthing,

bringing to life

what you have sown

and woven within me,

letting it into the world,

unfolding light.


May it be as a dying-day,

released from all that was

into the coming world,

a word finally spoken.


Re-creating God,

let there be light,

and let me begin,

a newborn child.

Weather Report

Dawn,

always,

even in fading light,

as each moment in turn

becomes the first.


Deep Blessings,

Pastor Steve
