Wild Goose of Love (A to Z)

33: Wild Goose of Love (A to Z)



Father of Creation,

God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ,

The earth was formless and void,

The earth was drenched in darkness,

And the

Wild Goose of Love

hovered over the waters of the deep.


Father of Creation,

God of Faithfulness,

You spoke and breathed life into being.

A tapestry of textures,

Displaying Bountiful biodiversity,

An interconnected web of life,

Formed and Filled as an act of creative love and power.


You declared it to be good,

And it is good,

It is our home.

To you be all praise and glory.


You declared it to be good,

And it is good,

We share this home with non-human worshippers

To you be all praise and glory.


Father of Creation,

Creation sings your praise,

Non-human worshippers partake in a litany of life,

A sweet song of praise,

A reverent dance and waltz of wonder.



Aardvarks and Badgers

Cats and Dogs

Elephants and flying foxes,

The sweet embrace of life.


Gorillas and Hippos,

Iguanas and Jellyfish,

Koalas and Llamas,

The sweet embrace of life.


Meerkat and Nightingales,

Orang-utans and Polar Bears,

Quetzals and Racoons,

The sweet embrace of life.


Seals and Tigers,

Umbrella Bird and Voles

Walrus and Xantus Leaf-toed Gekkos,

The sweet embrace of life.


Yellow Fin Tuna and Zebra Finch

The sweet embrace of life.

To to you be all praise and glory.


And yet, Oh Father,

The song of praise is being silenced

As humanity betrays it’s calling to tend and keep.

Lord have mercy,

Christ have mercy.


And Yet, Oh Father,

Creations dance turns to final waltz,

As holy habitats are plundered and pillaged,

Lord have mercy,

Christ have mercy.


Father of Creation,

God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

At this late hour,

As the earth becomes formless and void,

As the light of life becomes drenched in darkness,

We thank you that the Wild Goose of Love still hovers


Wild goose of Love,

Creation Groans.


Wild goose of love,

Creation groans.


In darkness, we wait.

In darkness, we hope.

These dry bones may yet live.


In darkness, we wait,

In darkness, we hope,

These dry bones may yet live


Father of Creation,

God of faithfulness,

Speak your word afresh and breathe life into being.

So that creations song will sing once more,

That out of the lament for loss may once again be found a litany of life

A sweet song of life

The sweet embrace of life,

To you be all praise and glory.


Amen
