Christmas Memory and Opening Prayer

Call to Worship, Advent Wreath
One: Come, Emmanuel.
Days grow short and to-do lists lengthen.
We watch and prepare, for the Word is coming, full of grace and truth.
For a child has been born to us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders and he is named;
Mighty God

All: A spark of joy lights the way—
Though the flame flickers against the shadows,
We will rejoice in God’s promise that changes our perspective to joy.
