This post – originally inspired by the theme, Bright – has been on hold since August. It made more sense to wait and delay posting until Christmas came into view, the season of the church year when we traditionally think about bright things like choirs of angels and guiding stars. Only a few more days now.
 

Wishing you all a fresh encounter with the Christ child this Christmas.
 


Call to Worship

referencing Psalm 95:6, Psalm 24:1, Isaiah 9:2 and Revelation 22:16

O come let us worship and lift our hearts  …
Not because the world is good and last week was awesome,
but because the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it,
the God of the whole Earth.

O come let us worship and raise our hands  …
Not because our lives are all sweetness and light,
But because even those who walk in darkness
can see a great light,
the Bright and Morning Star

O come let us worship and bow down  …
Not because God gives us what we want,
But because God gives us what we need –
the holy child Jesus, God’s Unspeakable Gift.
