Elementary:

Good morning ___school name____.

Wherever you are in the building, please stand up for Jesus and join me in the sign of our faith. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

We begin this morning by lighting two purple candles and our pink candle. Have someone in the room turn the lights off in the classroom so we can focus in on our Advent wreath. (Pause)

Our three lit candles represent our purple candles of HOPE and PEACE, and this weeks pink candle of JOY.

This mornings' poem is called, "A Christmas Prayer".

Slow me down Lord, when I rush out for toys, dolls, robots and space ships for good girls and boys.

Help me remember the Christ child had none. He didn't want arrows or a dart shooting gun.

Slow me down Lord, when sweet baking time nears. In pies, cakes and cookies. I'm up to my ears.

Help me recall that there was no buffet for our Baby Jesus that first Christmas day.

Calm me down, Lord, when the going gets tough.

When the dog chews the stockings and the kids get too rough.

Help me remember it's "Christ" Christmas brings, and Christ is not found in material things.

Slow me down Lord, when the company is coming and exhaustion sets in while I'm rushing and running.

Help me to recall there were only three who came bearing gifts for Christ's birthday party.

Just Mary and Joseph and Wise Men and beasts.

Christ's birth was not raucous with parties and feasts.

Amid peace, love and stillness the Christ Child was born.

Set me down Lord, on my knees now to pray, for in this position I can't run away.

Help me remember that Christ high above

Came down to the stable with nothing...Just love.

So when I get smothered in false holiday spirit,

Play "O Holy Night" and make sure that I hear it.

Help me realize that back to Christ we must rush

Before he gets trampled in this holiday crush.

For already he's missing from "Xmas" and cards,

And holiday decorations that light up our yards.

So slow me down Lord, when I'm off to false starts, For the Spirit of Christmas is Your Love in our hearts.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen                            Have a great day!
