DECEMBER COLLECT:

Holy Child, in your quiet hidden way, come to heal and save.  Incognito, in our streets, beneath the concrete, between the cracks, behind the curtains, within the dreams, in ageing memories, in childhood wonder, in secret ponds, in broken hearts, in Bethlehem stable, still small voice, baby’s cry, Word of God – be born among us.  Amen.

We celebrate those who have stood alongside us,
holding us in the depths of elation or despair,
where words of joy or rescue fall silent.
For those who lit our lives with joy,
for those who have touched us with tenderness,
for those whose loss fills us with longing
Holy God, within and amongst us, we give thanks in glad remembrance.

Amen.
