Pentecost Confession: Move!

Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment for Pentecost.  It was written by Rev. Scott Cervas.

Pentecost Confession

Spirit of God,
you move around us and we wave you away
as if you are a fly getting too close to our heads.
You move among us, but we all have different ideas…
different ways of doing things…
and so your perfectly chilling harmonics
are drowned out by our chaotic dissonance.
You move within us,
but sometimes we just aren’t willing to risk our own reputations
to embrace your radical vision.
But, deep down, we know that we need to move beyond ourselves…
we know that the church needs to move beyond itself.
So keep moving…keep moving around us, among us, and within us…
keep moving us so that we can be creators of movement in the world…
