Closing Responses: Advent 1 B

Here are some closing responses and a benediction for Advent.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

The Path Ahead
(based on Mark 13: 24-37)

Watch out! Be alert!
Christ comes when you least expect it.
     In the beggar on the street,
     In the loved one at our table,
     In the stranger in our pew,
     In the refugee on our shores,
     In the hour of birth.
     In the hour of death.
With judgement and mercy, Christ comes.
Watch out! Be alert!

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
be with you now and always.
