Luther's Small Catechism - The Lord's Prayer - Word Cloud

A word cloud is a text picture.  Word clouds equate the size of the "word" or "topic" with the number of times a given word is used and therefor its importance in the given text.

It is an interesting way to look at a text.  So I ran the six chief parts of the catechism through a word cloud generator.  http://wordle.net.

The catechism texts I used are found at http://www.lcms.org/graphics/assets/media/LCMS/smallcatechism.pdf


The Lord's Prayer

I like very much how this could puts "Father" at the center.  Other important words: "kingdom" "heaven", "forgive."

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. (Romans 8:14-17 ESV)
