In our Chalice Hymnal there is a song, “Creator God, Creating Still.” That idea is what Day 3 is all about – that God didn’t just create the world and then say, “Okay, that’s it!” God continues to create new possibilities, new ways of seeing the world, new ways of doing things, new chances at life and love. We get stuck sometimes when we think that how things are is the way they will always be and that we are powerless to do anything about it.
What would happen in our lives if we really lived with the idea that God is still creating within our lives and in our world? God is still opening up possibilities for the healing of the world and the strengthening of our lives as a blessing in a world that is in need of blessing. And what would happen if we began to see ourselves more and more as partners with God in renewing creation by our actions and our attitudes and our intentions? Can you imagine we took on the vocation of tikkun ‘olam – mending the world?
When you listen to your life, what do you hear?
