A Christmas Blessing
We remember that long ago
a Child was born into our world
who embodied the Love of God.
Let us pray that abundant strength and
courage be given to each of us
as we work together to heal our world
so that all creation may flourish in peace.
Let us know the good in our hearts,
that may be magnified and generously shared with others,
especially the unwanted and unloved in our midst
and those who have no place to call home.
Finally, may we come to see more clearly not that which
divides us, but that which unites us;
that each hour may bring us closer to a deeper understanding
and mutual respect for one another.
We wish you the true spirit of this Christmas Season:
joy, beauty, love and hope,
