Good News of Great Joy
We celebrate the birth of Christ and discover the things that make for peace and usher in great joy for us all!
Almighty God, It’s dark outside and the nights are long.
We watch and wait with mounting expectation
for the coming of your son into the world.
We ease our waiting with the decorations of tinsel and tree and lights.
We delight in their beauty,
but Lord, in our eagerness
guard our hearts from celebrating
the things we have made instead of the gift you will give.
