Third and Fourth Sundays in Advent
And Christmas marches ever closer. It's amazing how quickly December flies by. So fast I missed posting for the third Sunday in Advent and now it's the fourth. This morning at Church, our youth lit the Advent candle and as a youth leader, I got to read the prayer: Loving God, we open ourselves to you this Christmas season. As these candles are lit, light our lives with your imagination. Show us the creative power of hope. Teach us the peace that comes from justice. Fill us with the kind of joy that cannot be contained, but must be shared. Magnify your love within us. Prepare our hearts to be transformed by you, That we may walk in the light of Christ. Amen.
