In the scriptures you are called Wisdom,
the Sophia of our ancient days.
And we call upon that Wisdom again today.
For the world continues to dismiss, to diminish,
and to debase the Feminine among us.
The war against women’s bodies is
really a challenge to the Wisdom
that comes only from Sophia, the spirit of the feminine,
that Wisdom that brings us into peace.
As we celebrate motherhood today,
let it not be in the vacant ways that diminish the feminine
that births us and bears the burdens of our upbringings
with a Wisdom that transcends any need for power or privilege.
Let us instead, celebrate all of the ways in which
Wisdom as Sophia moves through us and this world,
building hope, fostering peace, and growing the love
of a God who is called the Sophia Spirit —
the Mother and Creator of us all.
Called Wisdom now, and forever more.
Selah and Amen.
