What Does This Mean?

O God

The mystery of your eternal existence is beyond our comprehension; Jesus of Nazareth brought you nearer, enabling us to think of you in human terms; now with the coming of your Holy Spirit at Pentecost we are once again plunged into details we can't easily understand. We ask together with those mystified by events 2000 years ago: 'What does this mean?'

Forgive us for always wanting to make sense of things. But it seems that's how you made us.

So we come to you, humbly asking you to deepen, if not our understanding, then certainly our experience of you as the One who, by faith, is always present.
