The Episcopal Church in the Diocese of California 2011
In this meditation, you are invited into the evocative language of the Lord's Prayer from the New Zealand Prayer Book as it is chanted by Ana Hernandez and Helena Marie, CHS. God is called upon as Eternal Spirit, Earth Maker, Pain Bearer, and Life Giver. This most beautiful song is given a visual response with symbols and video to represent Creator God, Son, Spirit, Trinity, Creation, Prayer, Stewardship of Our Brothers and Sisters, and Stewardship of the Earth.
