Likeness litany: facing the Image Bishop Graham Kings June 18, 2014 Poetry Formed in the image and likeness of God, We rejoice; Fired by violence and facing away, We recoil; Advertisement Defaced, despairing, curved in on ourselves, We cry; Remaking, repairing, curved into the world, You come, the Image of God. With compassion, forgiveness, restoring the image, You heal; With powerfully piercing, incisive insight, You teach; With passion and proverb and practical story, You preach. Facing Jerusalem, challenging temple, You suffer; Surfacing from the depths of death, You’re raised; Infusing, renewing, the image refacing, You pour out the fiery Spirit of God. Being transfigured into your likeness, From glory to glory; With unveiled face, we face God’s Image, Reflecting the light of the knowledge of God, Seen in your face, Jesus our Lord.
