AdventWord 2022

I am participating in AdventWord 2022. I have participated in this spiritual discipline off and on for several years. As in year’s past, the photos are usually ones that I have taken and saved, or that others have taken and saved. Should I take a photo for AdventWord 2022, I will note that. Here is the list of words.

Wishing you a blessed Advent of waiting and preparation.

A prayer for the first Sunday of Advent

Slow us down, God,

that in this season,

we might wait

we might watch

we might prepare

to celebrate the birth of Jesus

to experience Jesus coming into your world and our lives each day

to live following Jesus more closely.

In his name we pray.

Amen.

It comes this night

It comes this night.

Faintly, 
ever so faintly,
it comes.

Above the roar
of anger and hatred,
Above the howl 
of prejudice and bigotry,

Above the maelstrom
of systems and structures,
Above the crash 
of violence and war,

Above the groan
of doubt and despair,
Above the dis-ease
of heartache and heartbreak

Above the tumult
of turmoil and trouble
Above the clamor
of struggle and strife

Above it all,
despite it all
because of it all,
it comes.

Faintly,
ever so faintly,
it comes.

A baby’s cry,
proclaiming
life and
love and 
justice and
peace and
hope,
this night
and all nights.

It comes.
Thank God, it comes.
