Advent Lighting Litany – (By Rev. Nancy J, http://ruminari.wordpress.com/  and  Joanna Harader, https://spaciousfaith.com, used with permission)

O come, O come, Emmanuel–

God with us.

Come into our brokenness;

Come into our joy.

Come into our captivity;

Come into our freedom.

Come into our fear;

Come into our compassion.

Where is our Hope to be found? 

We have hope because God is with us; in our past, our present and our future.   O come, O come, Emmanuel. 

As we wait, may we hear the voice of God.

In our homes, at our work, even while waiting in line—may we see the face of Christ.

Now is the moment, let us prepare our hearts.

In our words, in our hearts, in all we say and do—

O Come, Emmanuel, God with us.  Amen.
