Living Psalm 150 – Easter 2C
Living Psalms Book
Psalms in the form of words and art, reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
Give Creator the glory
Sing and drum our songs to our Maker who resides in, on and throughout Mother Earth.
Praise the Holy One for unsurpassed acts of wonder and magnificence.
Listen to how our drums’ heartbeats express our gratitude,
Watch how our dancing feet show our joy, and our jingle dresses, ribbon skirts, fringed leggings, beaded moccasins and all our regalia reflect our joy and love for Turtle Island and Creation.
All our relations on the land, in the sky and in the waters proclaim the abundance of our medicines and blessings. Meegwetch.
