God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to them: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” —Exodus 3:14

The desire awakened by the name of God is inscribed deep in our unconscious, leaping to our lips at times of birth and death, of entreaty and gratitude, of desperation and separation, of surpassing joy and heart-rending sorrow, of peace and danger: ‘God help us.’ ‘Thanks be to God.’ ‘May God be with you.’  — John Caputo, The Weakness of God: A Theology of the Event

Stir within us, spirit of the living God. Rise up and meet us. Be with us in our desperation and heart-rending sorrow. Bring your deep peace, your help, your nearness. Amen.  —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
