The work and joy of creation

Let us share in God’s ongoing work of creation.

the joy of creating

God who wrestled with chaos to create matter, and overcame death to bring us to eternal life, give to writers, musicians, and artists a share in the work and joy of creation, that, like you, they may draw forth beauty out of nothingness, and reveal to us some glimpses of your eternity, where you are enthroned, Life-giver, Pain-bearer, Love-maker, alive for ever and ever. Amen.

A prayer by Michael Counsell (1935- ) in his book 2000 Years of Prayer, p. 564

The “work and joy of creation” continues in every moment. All of us—not just those who are called writers, musicians, and artists—all of us, are invited to join God in the work and joy of creation. Today, let the creative work and the joy of God flow through you. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
