Opening and Prayer: A Drop of Water

Here are some opening sentences and an opening prayer from Katherine Hawker.

Opening Sentences

A drop of water.
Insignificant in isolation.
When dropped in a pool
The ripples move out into infinity
The water is changed
By one drop of water.

A drop is falling
Into the pool of our spirit.
The water begins to ripple...

Holy God,
as we consider the magnitude of a drop of water
to touch and change the pool,
may we hear the power of your touch in our lives,
the potential for our lives to touch others. Amen.
