What was the first thing to bring light to you this morning? A lamp? The sun? An overhead light?
How do lights help you throughout your day? Where do we need light?
Can you think of someone who is like a light for you?
At the Giving Thanks Dinner, Chap and Will did one of the craft activities where they created a star out of air dry clay and put a tealight candle in the center. They chose blue clay and decorated it with small beads. As we prepared for Advent over the weekend, I placed the star in a small red bowl and wrote this prayer that accompanied the activity on a card.
As we light this star,
we pray that people will find the light of Jesus this Christmas:
Light in darkness
Light to the lonely
Light to the sad
Light to the sick
Light to the worried
Light to the lost. Amen.
(written by Mina Munns)
Each dinner so far, Will turns on the light and we say the prayer together.
Consider the star in the story of the Nativity leading to Jesus who is the light of the world. How will you share that light this Advent season?
