Call to worship 5 December 2021

The Prophet Isaiah says:

A voice shouting in the wilderness:
get ready a path for the Lord,
make the roads straight for him!
Every valley shall be filled in,
and every mountain and hill shall be flattened,
the twisted paths will be straightened out,
and the rough roads smoothed off,
and all that lives shall see God’s rescue.”

May we lift up our hearts

to the promise of God

even in the wilderness of Advent

may we live hope, which our first candle reminds us of

may we prepare the Way

for the coming of the One

called the Prince of Peace

to share his love

as we get ready to celebrate his birth

may the light of Christ’s peace burn brightly in us

this day and always
