I wrote an Advent prayer of confession for Covenant, which, in truth, I wrote for myself:
Oh Light of the World, we sit in darkness and wait.
We look to the skies for the coming of the Messiah.
We long for a God who will heal our wounds and right our world.
We need the peace only God can give.
We need the grace only God can show.
We need the Divine swaddled in human flesh
If we are to hold in our arms
The Gift of Love.
