Sharing Christ's Peace
Prelude to Worship
Gathering in the Light of Advent
Musical Response (Sing along!) - We Light a Candle (Peace)
one: John the Baptist said, “Prepare the way.”
So family of faith, how do we prepare our minds for worship?
all: We silence the inner critic.
We let go of busy thoughts.
We make space for God to speak.
one: How do we prepare our hearts for worship? all: We bless all emotions.
We feel what we feel.
We open ourselves up to be moved.
one: How do we prepare our bodies for worship?
all: We take in the scent, sight, and feel of this space.
We breathe in God’s mercy.
We exhale God’s love.
one: How do we prepare our souls for worship? all: We bring our full selves into this space.
We wear our hearts on our sleeves.
We trust that even now, God is here.
one: Family of faith, what we practice in worship, we must live out in our daily lives. So prepare the way.
all: Let us worship Holy God.
