Send a Prayer to Bethlehem
Liturgies for the Advent Season
Just when life seems comfy
and cosily predictable -
angels appear unexpectedly...
At the Turning of the Year
We gather, God of the changing seasons,
as the year turns to deepening darkness...
Days of heavy clouds stifling the
the world burdened by greyness and gloom...
Come, Lord Jesus
We stand at the turning of the year –
looking back on what has
and ahead to what is to
The Gift of Light
Jesus walked among His people
among people living in darkness...
The nights have drawn in –
long summer evenings are but memory;
winter is upon us –
and darkness surrounds us...
O Wisdom, O holy Word of God,
Wonderful is your counsel and great is your wisdom...
Passing on the Light
In the beginning, the universe was dark
and the Spirit hovered and brooded
"Let there be life!"...
Liturgy for Advent
We live in a world
oppressed by sin
a world of hunger
– pain – injustice...
Return of the King
In his days justice shall flourish
and peace till the moon fails...
Standing on the Edge
We are standing on the edge:
Our earth the blue-green jewel we call home
stands on the edge of global catastrophe...
This is True...
Is it true, Lord, is it true:
that You, Creator of the Heavens,
condemn Your people to stumble though life
their paths shrouded in darkness?
Is it true, Lord....is it true?
