A Christmas Blessing

May the news of the angels fill your life and your heart with great joy.

May the star that guided the wise lead you to the truth of understanding.

May the witness of the shepherds affirm in you the message of the Gospel.

May the sound of the incarnate Word bring you peace and hope.

May the presence of the sacred baby remind you of your own holiness.

And may this Christmas gift you, bless, comfort you, inspire you,

as you journey into another year.

 Peter Siney

Happy New Year!

“God Knows”

 

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied:
“Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.
And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.

Christ the King

Hear the Good News:

God has granted a glorious inheritance for his holy people.

If you are in need, our God is with you.

If you have been blessed, God has called you.

For God is our King, and his ways are ways of peace and healing.

Thanks be to God! We are called to be a people of peace and healing.

Amen.
