CREATION New Liturgy on 10.21.12

This weekend, we immersed ourselves in the beauty of God’s Creation.

Isaiah 6 says that the living creatures in Heaven never stop saying “Holy Holy Holy, the earth is filled with His glory!”  This word “glory” is the Hebrew word “kavod”, which means “weight, significance, of utmost importance”.  So another way we could say it is:

The earth is filled with the weighty significance of God.

God’s fingerprints are everywhere – in the beauty of His creation, in a conversation with a friend, in the celebrations of life, and in the most searing pain.  The earth is filled with the weighty significance of God.

The question is:  Do we have eyes to see?

And so this weekend, we focused on the beauty and goodness of God’s world.  A New Liturgy: CREATION was a 25 minute journey of music, prayer, scripture, and space…accompanied by a stunning visual liturgy by our friend Stephen Proctor.  Here’s an iPhone shot during the service…


For the Beauty of the Earth
Do it Again (GK Chesterton)
Psalm 8
Knows My Name
This is My Father’s World

If you’re interested in diving in more, you can read the entire text or download the recording at   We’re hoping that these recorded liturgies will help you create holy space wherever you find yourself – whether driving to work, walking in nature, cooking dinner, gathering with your small group, or anywhere you need “a sonic sanctuary”.

May we all have the eyes to find and celebrate God’s fingerprints everywhere.  The earth is FILLED with the weighty significance of God!

  2. This service really touched me. I listen to the CD on the way to + from work and have several copies tucked away for Christmas gifts.
