A prayer from CLWR for the First Sunday (and week) in Advent:
God of new beginnings, urge us to be ready for the coming of your incarnate Word. Move us towards living that seeks the welfare of our neighbour, that their basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing may be met. As we anticipate your presence among us, may we be reminded that it is among the poor, the outcast, those without power where you are found, and where we are to go. Work through us so that we may be your presence in the world. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
We are also offering an online Advent calendar.
