Christmas Eve Benediction


Here’s a benediction for Christmas Eve worship.  It was written by Jeanyne Slettom.

Benediction for Christmas Eve

We rejoice in God’s steadfast presence in our lives, 
and in God’s unique presence in the life of Jesus of Nazareth—
born of Mary, growing through childhood into an adult ministry,
in all his life manifesting the peace, love, and justice of God;
his voice undimmed by the centuries
his call and his promise as clear to us as it was to his disciples so long ago.

Come to us, Lord Jesus,
Be born in us this night, in our hearts, our minds, our lives.
May the light of your life be kindled in us,
And lead us to the shining truth,
of God with us, God for us, God in us. Amen.
