Making room for Jesus

2013 Advent good_news_hi_res Luke 2:1- 7

Prayer for the day:
Lord, you came to a family who was welcomed into a home when there was no room. On this day when we celebrate the gift of salvation in the miracle of life, open our eyes to those around us seeking welcome. May our homes and our churches be places of refuge and rest. May our embrace be one that reflects your love made tangible in the welcome of a child. Amen

Question for reflection:

Who do you need to make room for today?
