A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down,
and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance; Ecclesiastics 3:1-4 KJV
What season best describes where you are today? Why?
Let us Park and Pray at 1:11 pm
Loving God, Master of the Seasons in our lives, lands, seas and world. We call on you.
You touch us, blow on us, rain down on us and remind us you are near, here and with us.
You cover us with snow, slow our pace and draw us closer to you.
You satisfy our shivers and quivers, with your soothing blanket of sunlight.
You carry us over hills, under valleys, and through the seasons in our lives.
Today, in the midst of our bubble wrap, gift cards, tinsel and carols, we remember the story of Mary and Joseph’s search for an Inn.
We celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ, and the Son of God.
Loving God, lead us to the shelter of your Holy Presence.
Guide us to your manger, a birthing place where Christ is born within us.
Bless us with renewed faith and hope.
Thank you for being a Refuge and a Shelter.
Thank you for the gift of Christ in Season and at all times.
We thank you for hearing our prayers and our praise, in Christ’s name. Amen
