illumination

I know this is early, but we wanted to get it up in time for people to distribute to networks.

We’ve produced an advent candle lighting liturgy for congregations to use, with the hope of echoing the imagination of the prophets for a world created around restoration and justice.

Please download, distribute, adapt and use as you would like…

From week one:


God of the Advent,

Illuminate the world around us
so that we will see the cracks and stains
that mark the foundations of our community.

We pray for courage to look for your coming,
even though we know it will mean
that we will never see the world
with the same eyes
again.

Come, Lord, come

Response: Let light fill Your world.
