Meeting a stained glass window is similar to encountering someone for the first time. It helps to engage without analyzing too much.
Here I am God, ready for whatever comes next.
[God], You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing. Psalm 145:6 (NRSV)
Invitation to Prayer:
Gaze at the stained glass window without trying to understand what is there (the longer the better–at least 10 seconds) Let the shapes and colors wash over you. What prayers are emerging in your mind, heart, body, and imagination? Pray them now.
