Waiting

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.          

          In the deepening darkness we stand with our candles lit, singing of our sorrows and our hopes. We don't notice him among us,          with his candle.

We gather around the empty manger waiting unaware of new life unfolding in us. We don't hear her voice          blending so well with ours.

In the cold we huddle for warmth. How could we understand          how warm we are?

O come, O come, Emmanuel, God with us, we cry out          with your voice.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
