A Prayer for Advent

Remember what holidays felt like as a child—the magic, the awe, and the tender hopefulness? This week, let us pray that Christ would reignite that wonder in us again and that the God of all things would illuminate the darkness in and around us. May we move through Advent with peace and celebration, with hearts open to our families and our communities.
