The Made and the Maker

Each day I choose to follow

and each day I am chosen.

Each day I walk the earth

and the earth bears me.

Each day I move

and as I move I am led.

Each day God’s face shines

and grace warms my bones.

All the ends of the earth revere God

and I take this moment to join the end of the earth in praising God.

With the fear and the excitement of the made

we acknowledge our maker.


Remind us of the wild worship all around us

and in the midst of us

among us.


Psalm 67 (NRSVA)

1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
2 that your way may be known upon earth,
    your saving power among all nations.
3 Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you.

4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you judge the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations upon earth. Selah
5 Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you.

6 The earth has yielded its increase;
    God, our God, has blessed us.
7 May God continue to bless us;
    let all the ends of the earth revere him.
