Improv on Psalm 150 for next Sunday’s worship (reading or responsive reading)

The Living Psalms Project is a part of the UCC Worship Ways, which gives worship resources tied to the lectionary for each week. Living Psalms tries to re-shape or re-imagine each week’s lectionary psalm. Since I wrote this coming week’s psalm I am comfortable to post it an encourage folks to go to Worship ways and discover the wonderful gifts that are there. Find Worship Ways here.

Improv on Psalm 150

Praise God on every platform!
Praise God with the teen’s newest app
and the grandmother’s desktop monitor!
Praise God in the Cloud!

Praise God whose search knows
anyone who is running away from life.
Praise God whose browser
retrieves every doubter’s prayer.

Praise God with the trumpet of social media!
Praise God with LinkedIn and Foursquare,
for we are connected and found.
Praise God with creativity on Tumblr
toddler pictures on Facebook,
selfies on Instagram,
with the playlist of Pandora,
tasty-Pinterest
and thought-posts of WordPress.

Praise God with Twitter’s tambourines,
eastering it away from thosewho use it to crucify.

Praise God with GroupMe that gathers,
with Gofundme, Kickstarter, Patreon
that shift power,
and with Freedom giving hope
to those who have become addicted.

Praise God with arts on YouTubefrom garage band garage or concert hall,
from church camp and refugee camp!
Praise God with flash-mobbing Vimeo
and the little church’s prayer chain.

Let everything that has code – Praise God.

Praise God. Send.
