Not 50 Minutes, 50 Words!


Hearing the bell tower hour toll, I realized that last night's Liturgy of the Word took over an hour -- that's a lot of stories! I shared with the faithful a condensed version of what they just heard -- certainly lacking all of the rich, sacred imagery, but you certainly could make your way through this quick litany while recalling highlights of salvation history. For those who asked for a copy, here it is.

God made,
Adam bit,
Noah arked,
Abraham split,
Joseph ruled,
Jacob fooled,
Bush talked,
Moses balked,
Pharaoh plagued,
People walked,
Sea divided,
Tablets guided,
Promise landed.
Saul freaked,
David peeked,
Prophets warned,

Jesus born

God walked,
Love talked,
Anger crucified,
Hope died,
Love rose,
Spirit flamed,
Word spread,
God remained.

After a pretty decent search to find the name of the author, I am still unsuccessful. Any references out there?
