Holy God, whose coming to us in Jesus Christ we joyfully celebrate. Your salvation is from generation to generation. Break through the obstacles that keep us from seeing your glory and majesty. O God, lift our trampled and timid spirits to rejoice in your saving grace and carry our discipleship into the world. Amen.
What energizes you that could give life to something new and surprising that might possibly carry Jesus’s mission into the world?
