Talk of Poems and Prayers and Twitter

Brevity can foster creativity, or at least that’s my experience of Twitter’s 140 character limit. Add collaboration to the brevity, and creativity is multiplied! My friend & colleague the Rev. Eric Anderson and I inspired one another with a sequence of tweeted prayers earlier this week, and Eric has curated the prayers on his blog, ordainedgeek. Here is the first prayer:

If a star can shine
beyond its extinction,
surely I can manage
to rise and shine
through my weariness.

Help, God.

Read the rest of the prayers on Eric’s blog. As a bonus, check out a few additional tweets on our prayers for morning caffeine.
