1st Sunday of Advent

Candle of HOPE

 O Mighty God, today we light our first Candle of Advent. We kindle it with HOPE, and long for you to come to our world to break through and reign with compassion, justice, and peace. The prophet Isaiah cried to God to tear open the heavens and come down to earth. Isaiah also called God’s people to do right. Isaiah called them to be refashioned like a clay by God, the potter. This Advent, we call out to this same God to bring much HOPE to a world where many are in distress. Merciful One, break through all that keeps us from you. We ask for your compassion and good will, and pray that all will be awakened to your truth. Let your Word continue to be like a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Through-out this Advent Season we pray that you will shelter us with the dome on your embrace, because we believe that to be carried in your loving arms all will be made well again. Amen.

Many Blessings,

 Rev. Miriam Theodore
