God the creator,
who rested on the seventh day after the work was done,
show you how to balance the slow and the fast, the work and the rest.
God the redeemer,
who lived his life at walking pace,
strengthen you to go slow when the world is going fast.
God the sustainer,
who came at Pentecost like a rushing wind,
give you hope in the day when there will be freedom
from the limitations of time.
Go into a world of speed and live at God’s pace.
