Thoughtful Tuesday
Preparing for Worship
There’s something about seeing the Christmas story unfold before our very eyes.
There’s something about how it causes us to take notice in ways that simply hearing cannot.
So, as we gather on this last Sunday in Advent, we will hear and SEE the story unfold.
– from angels to shepherds to Mary & Joseph to magi –
will help us SEE the story of Jesus’ birth anew this year, as we listen to the following scriptures:
Isaiah 9:2, 6-7
Luke 1:26-33
Luke 2:1-16
John 1:1-14
Matthew 2:1-2, 9b-11

God, help us to see,
to really see,
your story unfold.
Help us to open our hearts to capture what our eyes see.
