Our Pentecost Meditation
Track from Itunes ‘Due Tramonti’ played throughout.
Relax your body, close your eyes and hold out your hands with palms facing upwards:
Spirit of life Before You and all the heavenly witnesses, We offer ourselves, mind, soul and body to You.
Fill our emptiness with your fullness
Place your hand over your chest:
Spirit of power We adore the brightness of Your purity,
the keenness of Your justice,
and the might of Your love.
Stir our hearts afresh
Clasp your hands together:
Spirit of love
You are the Strength and Light of our souls.
We desire never to grieve You. Touch us, and through us, our neighbour
Tilt your face upwards:
Spirit of Creativity Guard our every thought
and grant that we may always watch for Your light,
and listen to Your voice
and follow Your gracious inspirations. Enable and empower the gifts you have given us
Feel your feet firmly on the floor:
Spirit of Eternity
Draw us ever deeper into your Kingdom Give us grace O Holy Spirit,
Spirit of the Father and the Son
to say to You always and everywhere “Speak Lord for Your servant is listening.” Amen

A Beautiful Hymn
Spirit Blowing Through Creation
Spirit blowing through creation,
spirit burning in the sky,
let the hope of Your salvation fill our eyes;
God of splendor, God of glory,
You who light the stars above,
all the heavens tell the story
of Your love.
Refrain: Spirit renewing the earth,
renewing the hearts of all people;
burn in the weary souls, blow through the silent lips,
come now awake us, Spirit of God.
Love that sends the rivers dancing,
love that waters all that lives,
love that heals and holds and rouses and forgives.
You are food for all creatures,
You are hunger in the soul,
in Your hands the brokenhearted are made whole.
