love was visible in a child
On this day new joy entered our world.
May we try by our lives to share joy with others each day.
On this day fresh hope entered our world.
May we bring hope to those who are heavily burdened.
On this day love was visible in a child;
May we show our love for others in concrete ways of friendship and service.
On this day the promise of peace on earth was proclaimed.
May we be lovers of peace and demonstrate this love by reflective responses to life’s challenges and trials.
Son of God, light that shines in the dark, child of joy and peace, help us to come to you and be born anew this holy night.
Welcome to the season of Christmas!
