The Proclamation of the Word
Sunday, December 29th., 2019
Dr. Philip K. James
Fourth Sunday of Advent (Focus: Luke 1:26–38)
Reader 1: O God, we light the fourth candle of Advent.
(With the first three candle! s burning, a family member lights the fourth candle.)
Reader 2: We hear your angel Gabriel and witness the faith of Mary. Fill us with your grace and love.
Reader 1: Mary was a young, strong, spiritual woman. Even though her life was not easy, she heard God's voice and said yes. Her song was a prayer that would uplift those who were downtrodden. Her lyrics shattered the proud and called the world to change. She would bear within her the promised child, Jesus, the Light of the World. This Advent, we respond to God's beckoning to us as well.
People : Revealing God, visit us and fill us with your Spirit. Bring your good news to life within us. Give us courage to carry your light into the injustices and shadows of this world. Amen.
People: Shine on us, O God of justice;
Guide our path through gloom of night;
Bear within us Wisdom's glory;
Come to us, O Christ the Light and lover of our souls.
Jesus is the Reason
To become a nurturing community of believers; where persons and families feel love; participate in worship; develope their God-given gifts in ministry and committed discipleship, in order to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of the congregation and community, to the glory of God.
Because He lives, we can face tomorrow! May God Bless your week in a Supernatural Way!
May Jesus be the Center of your Joy!
You are in our prayers.
