Inclusive Lord’s Prayer

Hi! This is a translation of the Lord’s Prayer from Sufi, Neil Douglas Klotz. I made one modification. He had O Father! O Mother! Reading his book on his translation, he was really going for the holistic birther. So I ditched the gender binary and gave us a beautiful birther. I realize that the church will be forever wedded to “thy kingdom come” but maybe we can do something different occasionally.

O Birther! Creator 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 mistakes binding us,
as we release the strands we hold of others’ 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 renews.
Truly— power to these statements—
may they be the ground from which all
my actions grow: Amen.

Prayers of the Cosmos: Reflections on the Original Meaning of Jesus’ Words

Clergy Trials Continue

Rev. Cynthia Meyer (Great Plains Conference) who came out as a queer clergy in a committed relationship was charged with violating the Book of Discipline prior to General Conference. Her Bishop, Scott Jones, put her trial on hold pending the outcome of GC. Well, as we know, GC didn’t do anything but punt the football.

Therefore, the charges against Rev. Meyer are proceeding. Bishop Jones released a statement today here. It essentially says that while the Bishop’s plan calls for compassion, he will doggedly pursue Rev. Meyer giving not one jot or tittle.

#ItsTime to stand with Rev. Meyer! While we cannot be there, we can donate to the Biblical Obedience Fund at Reconciling Ministries Network that will aid in providing support, travel, and expenses. You can donate here:

http://www.rmnetwork.org/newrmn/donate-2/

Additionally, let us cover Rev. Meyer, her team, and the judicial process with prayers of compassion, mercy, and understanding of a new creation.

We can also continue to sign the letter calling the Bishops to stop prosecutions. That can be found here.

#ItsTime to stand with Rev. Meyer.
