Here we are, again, O God.
And while Christmas has come and gone in the world out there,
And so many have moved on to what comes next;
Here it is Christmas still.
For all that we have seen and heard…
For all that has been given to us…
For all that we have to ponder in our own hearts;
About the wonder and meaning and mystery of the season…
We give you thanks.
Help to create some space in our lives so that some part of all of this finds its way deep into our hearts and minds and souls so that our eyes are open a bit more and our hearts are open a bit more so we begin to see the world a bit more like you see the world; see each other a bit more like the way you see each of us.
We pray that it might be so.
