Lent 33

Ground of All Being:

Let my feet be grounded
wiggled into the cold earth
to sense roots that stretch and connect
to feel growth and movement of life

Let my feet be grounded
so that my praise comes up from my toes
and my mourning digs deep through my heels
and my intercessions arch from the balls of my feet

Let my feet be grounded
planted firmly in these mountains and valleys
aware of the dirt, not escaping with a pie in the sky
blessed by the earth, blessed by the grounding

Ground of All Being,
let my feet be grounded.

"Ground of All Being" is an image/theology of God that was developed by Paul Tillich.
