1. Let’s live nativity;
let the manger shape our minds,
the baby touch our hearts,
the mother bless our flesh.
Calling the Circle
Lighting the altar candles, white candle in the center:
Mother of all life, soul of our being, center of all our longing,
who shines for all and flows through all,
Be with us, guide us, now and always.
Light a candle as each line is spoken:
This candle is for the 150 loving, caring members of Sausalito Presbyterian Church.
This candle is for the people in our church who suffer from illness or disability.
Leader. O God, You created us and gave us life, but for what purpose? We live
and work, but to what end? Like children bringing their broken toys,
we lay here before You our lives in need of mending.
The spectrum of our faith and praise,
the art that serves through craft or phrase,
brings vital energy and power
to colour this and every hour.
O God, in whose image we are made,
Be in the folding of our hands, the bowing of our heads, the closing of our eyes, that we may be conscious of Your inward presence.
