Litany Based on John 1:1-4

In the beginning was the Word …

It all started with an act of divine self-expression.

and the Word was with God …

It all comes from the center of God.

and the Word was God.

God is our source.

He was in the beginning with God.

In Christ we encounter God’s primal expression, God’s first Word.

All things came into being through him,

In Christ we encounter the divine, creative impulse.

and without him not one thing came into being.

In Christ we encounter our connection to the source.

What has come into being in him was life,

The energy of life is from God.

and the life was the light of all people.

The energy of life in us is God’s incarnate presence.

May we live as though we know it. Amen.
