Our Communal Advent Prayer.

For those of you that did not get to attend last night we began the advent season together as a community.  We have decided to have the whole community pray a daily Advent prayer and light a candle as we attempt to re orient ourselves towards what this Christmas Season is all about.  If you did not get a chance to pick it up last night here is the prayer that we chose. 

An Advent Prayer by Henri J.M. Nouwen

Lord Jesus,

Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas.

We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day.

We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us.

We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom.

We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence.

We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.

To you we say, "Come Lord Jesus!"

The Lord's Prayer

Just wanted to remind you that we have been making our way through the "Lord's Prayer" on Sundays.  We have posted 6 of the seven talks on our podcast page (1 of the recordings did not turn out).  You can go to the podcasts directly or you can look us up through itunes.
