The news hasn't been good. The Religion of Peace is acting with characteristic savagery, the Administration stonewalls, lies and bullies, ammo's too expensive or unavailable altogether and we're being smitten by a plague of tornadoes. Oh, I almost forgot! Mainstream Anglicanism in the West has become a sort transsexual pantomime.
So here's a version of the Lord's Prayer to lift the spirits and get everyone closer to the goddess.
Our mother who art in earth
hallowed be thy creation
within this mortal person
you give us this day
our daily cup
attend our deepest wounds
for we are called to birth life anew
tempt us with your beauty
to pursue your desire
and deliver us from all slavery
present this hour
for thine is the drink of passion
that nursed a manger baby
great found of mystery
now and forever, amen.
Pretty neat, eh? Here's some more. It's a form of intercession to be used at a women's Eucharist.
"Sophia Wisdom: Our world community today, broken, unhealed and full of suffering, cries out for women's voices and leadership. We need women priests...to witness daily for nonviolence in a world gone mad with the power of weapons and guns and greed.
|Getting rid of the guns and greed|
We need women priests...to put their bodies on the line and witness to the Powers that Be to stop bloodshed. We need women priests...to name our government's squandering of the people's money. We need women priests...to call our government, church, and all institutions to transparency, conversion, and accountability.
|Wall Street Trembles|
We need women priests...to speak up to the government and voice the basic needs of the grassroots -- which have gone unmet for so long. We need women priests...to preach the Good News to the poor, the oppressed and exploited, and to empower them mightily.
|Afflicting the Rich|
We need women priests...to boldly proclaim the Gospel so that it afflicts the rich and comfortable -- who need shaking up. We need women priests...to name the injustices-which are many-that take us away from the fullness of our humanity.
|We Demand Respect!|
We need women priests...to demand respect for our Earth and her life-giving waters. We need women priests...to restore us and our lives to wholeness/holiness-and to recreate us as community."
What a gang of clowns.
