This litany is based on a reading of the Lectionary selections for the Fifth Sunday in Easter.
God, you put us here on earth as embodied human beings,
For your glory and our learning.
We experience you in all kinds of ways:
You dropped a lot of hints about yourself along the way,
From stone tablets to still, small voices,
From prophets to angel messengers,
From rainbows to rescues.
Then you sent Christ Jesus, the epitome of you, to teach us about yourself,
About your love,
And about resurrection.
Let us love one another,
Because love is from God;
Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
God is Love. You are Love. (1)
As Christ abides in you, and we abide in Christ, ()
So we abide in Love.
We meditate on all we’ve learned of you,
And we meditate on the life and work of Christ;
Asking that we may know more deeply, more fully,
The Love in which we abide.
