Holy God,

Who calls us to our best selves

Without excuse we show up today in holy splendor

Crossing bridges in holy boldness

Loving our neighbors in holy trust

Caring for creation in holy awe

Submitting fully with holy bodies

Holy God,

We show up today in holy splendor

Not with airs of “holier than thou”

But a holy that comes only from You

A holy which is found in right relationship with You, the “othered” and all of creation

The holiness You call us to each day

On purpose and purposefully

Holy God,

We show up today in holy splendor

Loving

Living

Sharing

Fighting

Envisioning

Creating

Singing

Dancing

Transforming

Grateful for Your Holy Spirit

Amen
