In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

​Today we hear in Matthew's gospel:'But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market-places and calling to one another,

"We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;

   we wailed, and you did not mourn."

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, "He has a demon"; the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, "Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!" Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.'

​The Gospel of the Lord – Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus invites us to take a second look at him and his teachings. There are many distractions that try to take the place of Jesus in our lives and we come up with all sorts of reasons to not follow him or not believe in him. 

Yet we all hunger to be loved. Jesus is love, God's love, come to us in a person who can show us how to love through all the ups and downs of our lives.

We pray:

Son of God,
you love each one of us
as if there were just one of us;
those who have striven hard
to obey your commands,
those who have drifted here,
unsure of the path they walked,
those who are here simply
because of your grace,
individuals, all of us.

Son of God,

you love each one of us

as if there were just one of us,

how can we not sing your praises

for all that you have done.  Amen

We move into today with our Advent prayer:

God's hope to direct me.

God's love to surround me.

God's joy to warm me.

God's peace to comfort me.

Bless our Advent journey to Christmas with light and patience, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
