Water and the Word: Stretched Thin

O Lord, when we

feel stretched thin,

our personas spread across

too many digital/techno formats,

with not enough pixels available

to create a representation

of our whole selves,

give us both courage and gumption

to perceive that the reality

of who we are is encompassed,

not in the bits and bytes

of our online presence,

however hurried and harrowing

that may be,

but in the deeps

of our marrow

that connect us

one to another

by the spiritual DNA emanating

from creation’s primordial ooze.

Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.
