(based on Exodus 3: 1-15)
This place for us is Holy Ground.
The place where we sing songs of praise to the Lord,
and repeat the stories of faith
that inspire us to respond to Christ’s love.
God called us here,
in whispering winds and in burning flames,
and with his presence
disarms us of the barriers we have placed around us.
Instead God meets us in our vulnerability,
Let us worship the Lord.
— written by Rev. MaryAnn R. Rennie (minister of Corstorphine: St. Anne’s Parish Church in Edinburgh) for the Church of Scotland’s Starters for Sunday website.
