An Advent morning prayer:
Blessed are you, Sovereign God of all,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
In your tender compassion
the dawn from on high is breaking upon us
to dispel the lingering shadows of night.
As we look for your coming among us this day,
open our eyes to behold your presence
and strengthen our hands to do your will,
that the world may rejoice and give you praise.
Blessed be God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
Blessed by God for ever!
(from Celebrating Common Prayer)

Marc's hours at the church will be a little different in December. This week I will have my regular days. The following two weeks I'll be here on Wednesday and Thursday (Dec 10, 11, 17 & 18) instead. Christmas week hours will be determined later. I'm planning on being back on normal days (Tuesdays & Wednesdays) in the last week of December.
