WHEN WE GIVE EACH OTHER GIFTS AT CHRISTMAS TIME

Lord, God our Father,
Let us remember when we give each other gifts on Jesus’ birthday,
that we give those gifts in Jesus’ name.

So we pause now to remember all that you have given us – the sun, the moon and the stars,
The oceans and all that live in them – the mountains and all that move upon them.
Let us remember that you have given us, for our good - all the green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit.
You have given us for our good - the animals and the birds who rely on us for their good.
You have also given us many other things – and many of them we quarrel about and have mistreated and misused.

You have great faith in us – sometimes more than we have in you.

And then, beyond our wildest imaginings,
and to save us from our own foolishness,
and all our sins, you sent us Jesus,
Who came down to earth, and gave us himself.

Let us remember, Lord God, that this is why we give Christmas gifts – to remind us that we have been given much.

May our gifts remind us that Jesus’ mother Mary gave us her baby on Christmas day, to be one of us.

May this gift giving show that we remember all of this, and that we celebrate it to this day.
Amen.

Diane's memories of her First Communion are a beautiful reminder that in the Eucharist, we feed on God's love and find our way home to Him through His body and blood. #studyconnectransform ... See MoreSee Less

A dear Cornerstone member passed this prayer along.

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple LOVE, it cannot shatter HOPE
It cannot corrode FAITH, it cannot destroy PEACE
It cannot kill FRIENDSHIP, it cannot suppress MEMORIES
It cannot silence COURAGE, it cannot invade the SOUL
It cannot steal eternal LIFE, it cannot conquer the SPIRIT. Amen

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:6
