THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT: ¨we receive patience and hope...¨

Like Mary, who says Yes to your promise,
and farmers in hope for their crops,
     we welcome your good news in peace:
your grace that will upend our world,
     we receive with patience and hope.
Your justice that brings down the mighty,
     that feeds the hungry and poor,
we welcome, and ask for your courage.
     In peace we say Yes to your peace.
In peace we welcome the miracle:
     may your life unfold within us in light.
The desert will blossom, the blind will see,
     and we will return from our exile
     to be one with each other again.
Like Mary, who says Yes to your promise,
     in peace we say Yes to your peace.
Amen.
