Dawning Light

Dawning Light

Advent One Sunday 3 December

From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who works for those who wait for him. Isaiah 64.4

Ponder the idols of today. They are no better than the ‘gods’ of the past. They are created and modified to be seen as something they are not. They fail us. They are not what we thought they were. We are wasting our time wanting to be like them.

There is only one God. This is the God whom all people can worship. This is the one God in whom everyone on earth can find imperishable love, unconquerable hope and undiminishing light.

 

God of eternity and all possibility,

whose ways have stood the test of time

and whose hope is in us now,

grant us the trust to place you above all others

so that we may find a fulfilment which knows no end.

From those that denied your truths in times long gone

to those who deny your truths today

deliver us that we may receive of your goodness now.

Amen.
