More challenging than we imagine

2013 Advent good_news_hi_res  Luke 2:7

Prayer for the day:
O God, who came in the vulnerability of a child, we so often sing of silent and restful nights as we celebrate Jesus’ birth. We confess that all too often we fail to imagine what the peacefulness of that night has to say to the madness of our day. Open our eyes to the grace of the nativity in our everyday lives. Amen

Question for reflection:

Where have you seen the peace and calm of the infant Jesus in the past few weeks?

~ Josh Brockway, Director for Spiritual Life and Discipleship
