Our God can never be contained



Our God is bursting forth

Our God can never be contained

Our God is bursting forth

Breathe the goodness

Breathe the healing

Breathe the spending

And the sending

Feel the motion

Feel the rhythm

Our God can never be contained


Our God in Jesus, down to earth

Our God in Jesus, eye to eye

Our God in Jesus, down to earth

Our God in Jesus, eye to eye


Contemplation

Proclamation

Conversation

Liberation

And the witness

Of his life

Our God in Jesus, eye to eye


Walking together hand in hand

Walking together side by side

Walking together hand in hand

Walking together side by side


Imagination

Inspiration

Understanding

Transformation

Holy Spirit

New Creation

Our God can never be contained

Our God can never be contained.


The song above that I have chosen for you today was inspired by input presented by Fr Anthony Gittens, a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit. I met him in 2002. The power of the Spirit is alive and active and can breakthrough into the most difficult of places, bring peace, healing and transformation. Come Holy Spirit and enkindle within us the fire of your love.......


On this feast of Pentecost, the Gospel taken from John 20:19-23 has the Risen Jesus appearing before his disciples even though the doors were closed and he breathed on them and they received the gift of the Spirit. Closed doors cannot contain him. He turned their fear and sorrow into joy. The Spirit broke through the defenses of their hearts and transformed them into powerful witnesses of the Good News.


That same Spirit is given to each one of us. We are capable of words and deeds that seem almost beyond us. God through the power of the Spirit chooses to work in and through us.

If we choose to live by the Spirit how can the life and love of God be contained?


Blessings on your week.
