god our mother

by The Liturgists

Created in honor of Mother's Day, God our Mother is a liturgy that explores both the scriptures that speak of God in a maternal context and the limits of human language in describing an infinite God.

God Our Mother includes an apophatic contemplative meditation. Apophatic disciplines seek to push beyond language and rational thinking in the context of God's Holiness, and can be very powerful. For this reason, we recommend that spiritual practices like apophaticism are best moderated through scripture, tradition, and some form of spiritual community.

Words and lyrics from God Our Mother are available here.

God Our Mother is available on BandcampiTunes, and The Liturgists Store for anyone who would like to add God Our Mother to their music library.
