Psalm 15

Masked smiles -

darker eyes

unspoken questioning -

raised eyebrows

muffled voices -

directional finger

listening, watching, learning

new ways.

 

Open us, O God

to the new ways that reveal

your unmasked face.

the fresh sounds

to answer the curious

the untried actions

to love in the world.

 

Show us, O God, creative ways

to listen to you

to worship you

to be in communion with you.

Mixing it up 

shaking it down

shifting it out.

 

Renewed ways

beyond being a church

but being The Church.

removing the masks of generations

which have distorted your voice

of unity

And revealing the surprise

That is God today
