Advent I - Hope

Advent I - Hope

Advent III Joy Lighting of the Third Advent Candle and Confession of Brokenness One The problems are huge, the solutions are microscopic. Bad news crowds the world, refuses passage to delight. Who will prepare the way of our joy? Many The One who promised to exchange a garland of for the taste of ashes. One When garbage chokes the sea and threats choke the airwaves;

When the rich buy books to learn to divest themselves of while the poor long for just enough to stop worrying; When only those who can pay can be healthy, Who will prepare the way of our joy? beauty things, Many The One who made the earth and all its contents good. The One who promises to bring all things to fulfillment.

One When men are full of anger and power, when women are not believed. When those who are neither, or both, are abused. When children are exploited by governments or by traders. When color is still the measure of personhood, when wealth is still the measure of worth, who will prepare the way of our joy? Many The One who came in a human body with human needs and heavenly desire, a human brain and Gods own thoughts,

a human heart and Eternitys love. One Desire of Nations, Glory of Heaven, Light of the World: You are our joy, you are our light. Many We dont know the hour of your coming, So until then, let us be the peace and the light. See us shining, and come. (The third candle is lit. Silence is kept.) One

Like calls to like. Deep calls to deep. After shadow, light. Many light. Deep calls to deep. Like calls to like. After shadow, Prayer of Dedication One God, we cannot do everything Many But we can do something.

One We cannot do all things Many But we can do many things indeed. One So we pray to you, the one who can do all things, Many

For whom everything is possible: One Take these incomplete efforts of ours Many And complete them utterly. One Receive this offering, which is not enough, Many

And make it sufficient for this day. One Come to us, your half-full people, Many And fill us to overflowing. Amen.
