We are all woven together

"Wandering and Weaving" quilt by an Australian artist (source)

Tandaina has a lovely post contemplating how, even when physically isolated, we find ourselves linked through the internet into a global community. The reality is that we are all far more closely and intimately linked than we imagine, but the net has made it more obvious. She also ends with a prayer, and Tandaina offers lovely prayers:

Weaver of Life, God of unity and wholeness to you we give honor, glory, and thanks. For you created all that we see, and all that we cannot see. You in your complete perfection brought forth a universe of such beauty we cannot begin to experience its depth and breadth. And you created us from the dust of stars and placed within our hearts divine sparks. Teach us to see your burning light in one another, teach us to live together as your one holy family. Help us to make this world a place where all may sing with their own voice in divine harmony. Oh God we desire it, as we desire you. Amen.

Get to know Snow on Roses if you don't already. I also highly recommend her post on "Do you love Jesus?" because she articulates so well the objectivity of what we believe, by which I mean that it is grounded in God and not in ourselves, in divine love and faithfulness, not our perceptions, moods, and failures.
