Veni, Creator....

And so, folks, for now, silence.

In nine nights' time, see, the River City's transition of an epoch will have been accomplished.

Given that, the order of the moment on the ground is as intense as it's simple: to prepare, to pray and, above all, to invoke -- that each and all of us might know the needed gifts for the daunting work of rebuilding a fallen church in our midst... and along the way, that the vision of a people of God, called as never before to realize fully the best of what we can be, might finally come to pass among us, and so renew the face of this earth....

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful/
And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created/
And You shall renew the face of the earth....
