The God in Whom We Live and Move and Have our Being

Acts 17:22-31

Paul in speaking in Athens describes the God who created the world and everything in it, who is the universal giver of life and breath to all that lives, who created the diversity of people on the earth, who were created to seek God. Yet Paul says, we do not have to seek far, Indeed it is in God that we live and move and have our being. Today I invite you into a meditation to rest in the presence of this one in who we live and move and have our being…..This Spirit, whom as Jesus says in the gospel is IN us.

Relax, shut eyes if comfortable, Be in touch with your breath as you notice it moving in and out of your body . This breath of life often used as a symbol of the Spirit.… Breathe in the breath of life … Let it move deeply into your body … mind … and spirit … Breathe out fear and anxiety and release them as you are able to do so … Breathe in the breath of life
Release the toxins built up in your system…

Breathe in life … Breathe out fear and anxiety …
Breathe in life … Breathe out fear and anxiety …

Breathe in the grace of God in whom you live and move and have your being … Let this grace it gently take root in your body …
Breathe out the tension and stress that are held in the cells of your body …
Breathe in God’s grace … Breathe out tension and stress …
Breathe in God’s grace … Breathe out tension and stress …
Breathe in the healing strength of God … Breathe out whatever blocks you from being fully present …
Breathe in healing strength … Breathe out what blocks you …
Breathe in healing strength … Breathe out what blocks you …

Let the breath gradually still your soul … Let the breath gradually still your spirit … Let the breath gradually still your mind … Let the breath gradually still your body …
Know that you are in sacred space, where you have been invited by the Spirit … that the God in whom you live … and move … and have your being … flows through this place with deep unconditional love … Take some time to be in touch with this Source of Love … Be in this safe space where you are known by your Creator …

Notice how the Spirit comes to you? … Does it have form? … Is it a feeling? … Is it a knowing? … Simply allow the Holy to be with you in whatever way Spirit comes to you today … Experience the words from Spirit … “I remember you … I know you from before you were born … I have always known you … I could never forget you … I love you more than a new mother her child … You are mine … You are carved right into the palm of my hand … Rest there … Let me hold you in the palm of my hand”
As you rest in God notice your soul coming home …
As you rest in God … feel what it is like to be known to the core by Ultimate Love …
As you rest in God … feel the stresses, the distractions of your life fall away … for you know what is important … what is real … what matters …
As you rest in God … feel the fears and anxiety you carry fall away …
As you rest in God … feel the anger and pain you carry fall away …
As you rest in God feel the healing power of the Creator flowing through you … and around you … filling you with sacred light … healing light …

As you rest in God … know that you can live your life rooted in that love … in the knowing that you are loved … that you are known by name by your Creator … that you are precious to God …
As you rest in God connect with God’s peace, with God’s healing, with God’s wisdom, with God’s hope for the world and for you

Notice if there is anything the Spirit would like to say to you as you rest in God’s presence …

From that place of resting in the God in whom we live and move and have our being…Let us open our hearts and souls to those for whom we pray…asking that Spirit surround them…Imagine the love and the light of God’s Spirt surrounding those for whom we pray…. for our childen baptized today…Olivia, and Frances.,for all who have joined this congregation today. For Margie Ann and Ranny as they leave for a new beginning in Ottawa, For Robert, and others in our community who are ill, and who are going through crisis For all who are living on the edge, for victims of violence, victims of greed, For all who are on their healing journey.,.For this planet home in crisis, for all affected by food shortage Take some time to hold in the healing light of God those for whom we pray.

Together let us pray the prayer our brother Jesus taught us… Our father/mother
