Our Advent theme is:


Watching and waiting
Three weeks in which we are encouraged to stay alert to God’s purposes in our lives.


A prayer of thanksgiving and reflection

Lord, the plants in our gardens are bare now,
as winter is here,
but we know it won’t be too long
before little signs of life burst forth.

We acknowledge our barren times –
the sadnesses for the things we have lost.
We thank you for the memories –
for the comfort and hope you bring to us.

We commit to you the new things
that will surely come,
and we pray that we won’t be slow
to notice these new shoots,
and that you will water them plentifully
with your love.

Amen
