Our Mother who is within us
we celebrate your many names.
Your wisdom come.
Your will be done,
unfolding from the depths within us.
Each day you give us all that we need.
You remind us of our limits
and we let go.
You support us in our power
and we act with courage.
For you are the dwelling place within us
the empowerment around us
and the celebration among us
now and for ever. Amen

Before you rise up in arms, I want to clarify that THIS is not my prayer.  I did not compose it nor do I pray it.  I just posted it here to show you the kind of DIY Christianity pervading the world now.  Guess who wrote this prayer?  Not a Pentecostal, not a Lutheran, not Baptist, nor did it come from the WomenPriest movement.  The prayer was written by... a Catholic nun.  Sr. Miriam Therese Winter  Medical Mission Sister, wrote this!  She is a Professor of Liturgy, Worship and Spirituality.  And the author of WomanWord and other books and resources for Ritual.  So she thinks she can do better than what Christ taught us to pray!  Imagine this woman handling your parish's Liturgy!  No wonder liberals hate the Traditional Latin Mass.  NO type of shenanigans such as this would ever happen in a TLM.  

This "prayer" is being used by a Lutheran Church called Ebenezer/herchurch Lutheran in San Francisco.  They claim that their "Christian/Lutheran feminist prayers and liturgy reach back into the storehouse of tradition to bring forth names as Mother, Shaddai, Sophia, Womb, Midwife, Shekinah, She Who Is. They do so out of renewed insights into the nature of the Gospel empowered by the risen Christ-Sophia." And like that bigot and anti-Catholic Dan Brown they claim that "Christianity, for the most part, continues to slight or silence the voices and power of women, the divine feminine and efforts to empower women and support the equality of all peoples."

If you think that is the only abomination this church trumpets, take a look at their "rosary"

They replaced the cross/crucifix with a figure they call "Mother Goddess" which looks like a pagan idol.
