GRAFFITI ON THE SUBWAY WALL
SURMISE OF THE DAY: RECONCILIATION - NOT CONTRIVING BUT BEFRIENDING

A KUYPER BENEDICTION PRAYER

Kuyper

(This was a closing prayer I write for one of Fitzroy's Faith On Trial services where Mark Noll was the guest speaker... it attempted to include the thoughts of the evening... and is based around Dutch theologian Abrham Kuyper's thought from Calvinism that not one inch of the Universe is outside Jesus Lordship...) 

Lord, we have so often got stuck in the bawn,

Defending reductionist dogma

Instead of contributing

To the cutting edge of the contemporary issues of our day.

May we be a community of believers

That develops a vocational calling

Seeing every member as being in a vital missional place

In whatever they do in our city, society and world.

May we be a people who believe

That there is not one inch of our Universe

Over which Jesus doesn’t say, “This is Mine”

And may we be shaped and honed by the Holy Spirit

To be those who can restore, redeem and reform

Every inch of that Universe

Not to prove our greatness

But to make Jesus what he was, is and always will be

Lord of all!

AMEN

Eating properly is probably one of the most important things to do while pregnant.
