Holy One, this Advent season we wait in hope.
And we give in hope.
Hope for your coming reign;
Hope because of your presence with us even now.
Receive these generous offerings,
And use them for your work of healing and hope in our world.
Amen.

 

Holy One, this Advent season we wait with love,
And we give with love.
Love for you, our God;
Love for your beautiful people.
Receive these generous offerings,
And use them for your works of love in our world.
Amen.

 

Holy One, this Advent season we wait in joy,
And we give with joy.
Joy for all you have given us;
Joy because of your sacred promises.
Receive these generous offerings,
And use them to spread your joy in our world.
Amen.

 

Holy One, this Advent season we wait in peace,
And we give in peace.
A peace deeper than our anxiety and fear.
A peace growing from our trust in your loving power.
Receive these generous offerings,
And use them to bring your peace to our world.
Amen.
