rebrand us - a prayer by Walter Brueggemann

You mark us with your water, 
You scar us with your name, 
You brand us with your vision, 
and we ponder our baptism, your water, 
your name, 
your vision. 

While we ponder, we are otherwise branded. 
Our imagination is consumed by other brands, 
~winning with Nike, 
~pausing with Coca-Cola,
~knowing and controlling with Microsoft. 

Re-brand us, 
transform our minds, 
renew our imagination, 
that we may be more fully who we are marked 
and hoped to be, 
we pray with candour and courage.
