Virtual Methodist: Before Anything was

As promised I will be posting a series of poems, monologues etc that we used in our Harvest Sunday Celebration of Creation and Creativity. Many of them I have posted previously as I originally wrote most of them for New Irish Arts’ 10th Anniversary a whole ten years ago… This offering was originally written as a piece for 3 voices…





In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Genesis 1: 1-2

Before anything was I am…
Before the beginning I always had been

I was in the beginning and the beginning was in me…

As is the end…

There was never nothing

There is always me…

And always will be…

I am

Eternally infinite…

Uncreated creator

Unchangeable

Yet unfathomable

I am

But I chose to say “Let there be…”

And there was

There is



Selah
