Pentecost Litany: God's Imagination


Here’s a delightful litany for Pentecost from Roddy Hamilton

God’s Imagination

Who puts the copper into beach trees
and the waddle into penguins
who chose the colours of a rainbow
and put shapes into clouds

The Spirit of creation
God’s imagination

Who put the notes into music
and picked the dance steps for bees
who placed the hum in humming birds
and decided elephants would listen with their feet

The Spirit of creation
God’s imagination

Who invented yeast to make bread rise
and put the curve into a banana
who made laughter infectious
and chocolate taste like heaven

The Spirit of creation
God’s imagination

Today is Pentecost
and we celebrate the energy of God
who created us
and brings us together in a colourful and loving community
We call her the Spirit
