Beloved God, the earliest stories of your presence and your glory are still vibrant today in your holy scriptures. We thank you for all of the faithful ones who have passed this witness to us. We thank you for your Holy Spirit; breathing life into the Word, then and now.
Where your Spirit is, your Word is alive; where your Word is alive there story of your love is still unfolding.
Teach us to hear your Word with grateful humility and to tell your story with our lives.
