Begin the week with a prayer
I am in the thick of exams at Vanderbilt Divinity School. For one of my classes, I am writing a paper on the immanence (intimacy) and transcendence (beyondness) of God. Remarkable how God is at once near, as close as my heartbeat and as near as my breath, listening to the secret “rambles” of my heart; regular confessions of missing the mark; and the never-ceasing litany of petitions (begging!)for a miracle for my dear friend Tallu; while also responsible for dreaming up the Great Oak, the octopus, the Teton Mountains, my mischievous five-year-old Finn. It’s the magnitude and the magnanimity of God that leaves me regularly speechless, but more, gives me hope. Following is a prayer I’m including as a creative response to my paper. I hope it resonates with you!
Have a blessed week!
