so that we may see with fresh eyes
what we have been storing.
We have opened the windows,
so that the freshness of air
may find its way into every place.
You have called to us through our devotions,
through the mystery of art and song,
we have listened for you in each scripture.
We have come to the throne of grace,
ever spacious and welcoming,
with the contents of our temple, offered.
We have invited your Spirit into every place
and have opened the realms of our mind
to your breath.
These are the days of Lent
and we have learned that it bears no fruit
to be too hard on ourselves.
So we have brought ourselves to you
in humble self reflection and glorious adoration
and you will fill this temple anew.
