LIGHTING OF THR ADVENT WREATH
ALL TO WORSHIP
Wilderness living calls us to seek God in the voice that cries out.
“Valleys will be lifted up and mountains will be made low.”
To seek God in the sound of the one who speaks of peace,
“The day of the Lord is coming,”
To seek God in the loud noise that foretells what will be made new.
In the wilderness, let us listen only for God’s voice. Let us worship God!
HYMN #87 “Comfort, Comfort Now My People” (Click HERE for Hymn Words)
PRAYER OF THE DAY
Great God, in these times between your birth and your coming, we hear the words of John the Baptist for us today. In baptizing and receiving confessions, John pointed beyond himself to Christ. Help us to embody the good news that John proclaimed in our words and our work, that our lives might also foretell the coming of peace. Teach us to share good news with those who yearn for transformation and to listen for your gospel when we need a change of heart. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen
PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST
