Reflection

http://surfscooter.com/?maska=lugares-para-conocer-chicas-en-el-df&625=5f Advent

The Advent season is meant to inspire Christians to reflection, confession and preparation.

Advent reveals the ambiguity of Christian hope and history. The Christ whose birthday we so celebrate has died and risen, but how will Christ come again? Advent calls us to look both at the coming of Jesus, the child in the manger inspired to be God’s saving presence to humankind, and the Second Coming of Jesus, anticipated as the fulfillment of history.

At Advent God’s people summon the courage and spiritual strength to remember that the holy breaks into the daily. In tiny ways, we can open our broken hearts to the healing grace of God, who opens the way of peace.

follow link Prayer For Advent

O God you sent your Son into the world to be the Saviour of all who believe, and promised that he will come again: Increase in us the attitude of watchfulness and prayer, so that we may always be ready to meet him, with our lamps trimmed and burning and our lives active in his service, to the glory of your name. Amen.

Christmas is about God breaking into our world and lives so that He can put them back together.

  • It’s a season where we are called to put down our burdens and lift a song up to our God.
  • It’s a season where love wins, peace reigns, and a king is celebrated with each breath.
  • It’s the party of the year.

The Christmas we are challenged to find to find the quiet place and moment amid all the shopping and preparation and exhaustion. That quiet moment where we will consider Jesus, God’s greatest gift to us. He is the source and reason for our joyful noise at Christmas. In words of one of our Christmas carols, “Let heaven and nature sing.”

watch Prayer For Christmas

Lord we know the Christmas story so well. Help us to understand it better. Make it more real to us, so that with Mary and Joseph we may journey in faith to Bethlehem, with the shepherds we may hear again the good tidings of a Saviours birth, and with the angels we may glorify your holy Name. So give us newjoy in our Christmas worship and fill our hearts with wonder, love and praise. Amen.
