Light of lights, I sit in comfortable darkness, knowing that you will soon arrive. Make me ready to receive your blessings and share the good news of your arrival. Come soon, Holy One. Amen.
May I receive God's blessings.
This picture is from a worship service at Lake Junaluska Conference Center. I cannot imagine a Christmas Eve without candlelight. I wish for each one of you this day some time for quiet and reflection. May you rest in God's powerful love on this eve of Christ's coming.
The Advent portion of our journey is nearly complete. As you pause on this Christmas Eve, share the prayer of your heart this day.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
