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 could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
