Benediction for December 10, 2017

People of God,

The Lord of Love opens wide his arms to you today.

We are the biggest stumbling block in our relationship with God.

Let us get out of our own way.

Let us see God in the love born this Christmas.

Go with Love birthed in your hearts.

Go with the Christ-Child, Amen.

Litany for Domestic Violence Awareness

Lord, as we gather this morning,
we are aware
there is a woman shivering in fear in a home that is not safe
we are aware
there is a child begging his parent to stop fighting, to stop beating
we are aware
there is a man making promises he knows he can’t keep without help
we are aware
because your grace has changed our lives
we are aware
because your grace calls us to break these patterns of violence
we are aware
because your grace is working through us
we are aware.
