The Season of Epiphany is upon us,
a time of new beginnings and new awareness.
NO MATTER WHAT.
As I prepare for my sabbatical, and ask God to light our way individually and as a community of faith, prayer is a priority.
Share your Light in Prayer
O God, light our way so we can join
your world-changing mission.
Cast before us a beacon of hope.
Illumine the pathways to peace.
Dispel despair by the dawn of joy.
Draw us ’round the fire of your love.’
Set a star in the silent night
like you did that first Christmas
when seekers gathered in wide-eyed wonder
before the nativity of compassion.
Before they had any inkling
how a single, precious child
would change their world
and generations later
change it still.
