An Advent Liturgy: Day 19

Luke 2 : 8-12

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people.  The Saviour—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!  And you will recognise him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

Teach us to expect you
In unexpected times

In times of rest
or in the daily grind

Your good news will always break in
Nothing will stop your message

Give us courage to follow your commands
And confidence to share your good news

For your gospel brings joy
Your gospel brings healing
Your gospel brings freedom

Teach us to expect you
in unexpected times

Amen
