Because we are finite

Because we are finite, we lift up our eyes to the infinite sky, and feel wonder and awe. 

Because we have stumbled, we take the tender hand which beckons us to rise, and feel strength and reassurance. 

Because we are lonely, we reach out to those around us, and feel warmth and acceptance. 

Because we are human, we do all of these things, and in our worship, feel the presence of the divine.
