Advent — December 21, 2017, the Solstice

God, you find the Tiny Tim
inside of everyone —
both brokenness and courage.

We are absolutely vulnerable
and marvelously strong,
each needing a circle of love —
the corner by the fire,
the friend, the family —

and also the unexpected
intervention
of compassion shared.

And from this longest night
and this brightest gift
you call forth

the shocking
universality of benediction —

God bless us, everyone. Amen

    I have simply enjoyed all of the reflection/prayers on the Christmas Carol. Thank you. Last year I used some of design Studio’s material during advent and Christmas, by Marcia McFee. What joy we had doing that program. Maren’s prayers would have been so very helpful. They have been awesome. Thanks
