Liturgy December 30, 2007

God of love, all year long we pursue power,
freedom and money.
Yet, You came in weakness,
in poverty and to be bound for our sake.
All season long we covet great material gifts,
when You alone offer what is lasting.
By the power of Jesus Christ,
who comes among us full of grace and truth,
forgive us, heal us, and correct us.
Then open our lips,
that we may sing Your praise with the angels,
and remake our lives,
that we may be witness to Your transforming love
through Christ, our Lord. Amen
