Day 31 - March 27
Rev. Raedorah Stewart
Wesley Theological Seminary Director of the Writing Center; WTS D.Min. student
Pantone 266-2738 (or, the color commonly known as Purple)
Maker, Keeper, Lover ~
inspired by the writings of medieval mystic Julian of Norwich
who names the anthropomorphic God with being sans gender
God, our Maker
Raises her arms wide open
Beyond the expanse of her breasts
Marveling at her holy handiwork in us.
God, our Keeper
Holds the world in his hands
Compassionately adoring our frailty
Comforting earth’s groans and mothers’ laments through us.
God, our Lover
Speaks to our hearts
Hope—in spite of. Joy—because of. And Love—regardless.
Calling us God’s own and sending us out to welcome others in.
And so it is.
