Sending Words: Christmas

Here’s is a closing litany for Christmas.  It was written by Rev. Gord, and posted on Worship Offerings.

Closing Responses
(inspired by Luke 2:17)

Then the shepherds told everyone what had happened
and what the angel had said to them about this child.
All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished. Luke 2:17

It has been done!
The News has been shared!
A young maiden will bear a child,
and she will call him Jesus. 

But that is the beginning of the story,
a story that has not yet ended.
A story that includes us,
a story of which we are a part. 

So we go out to live the story,
to tell of the Hope that is being born among us this Christmas,
to share the Love of the season with the world,
to be agents of Peace in times of trouble,
to sing songs of deep and abiding Joy. 

As you go, may God go with you,
challenging us to respond God's Call
in ways that are new,
unexpected and a little unsettling. 
And as Tiny Tim said so very well...
God Bless Us Every One. Amen.
