We celebrate miracles this month.
Our Jewish friends are celebrating the miracle of a single day’s supply of lamp oil used in the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem lasting eight days.
We celebrate the miraculous birth of Jesus.
This season is much more than trees, lights and gifts. This season is the miracle of God’s Love made manifest.
Let us pray.
Father in heaven, we thank you for all you provide for us: for this safe and warm place to gather; for friendships, both new and old; for your miracles and healing among us; for life itself; for Love.
Father, we ask you for healing miracles among our classmates and their families who need them.
Please bless all of us here as we break bread and share our love with each other. Grant travel mercies to all those who will be traveling this month. Also bless those who were not able to be here with us today.
Please bless the food were are about to share. Bless those who prepare and serve it to us.
We ask all of these things in the name of your Son, Jesus.
And those here say – AMEN!
