Lord Jesus be born in us tonight

Eucharist image the communion liturgy from our Christmas eve service:

Let us affirm the love that God has for us — a love that was not, and cannot, be hindered.
We thank God for coming unto us; we praise God for Christ’s birth into our world.
It was cold and Mary and Joseph were fearful.
But that did not stop the birth.
They had no place fitting for their child.
But that did not stop the birth.
And today we are still sometimes cold and fearful, certainly poor in many ways.
We often feel that we have no place and are unclear about what God wants of us.
But these things did not stop the birth of Jesus then, nor will they do it now. To all who are open to God’s leading, God comes.
Lord Jesus be born in us tonight.
