Opening for Advent: Isaiah 40

Here’s an opening greeting for the second Sunday of Advent, Year B.  It’s based on Isaiah 40: 1-11.

"Here is your God" among us in this celebration.
He is like a shepherd feeding his flock,
embracing us in his love
and bringing us mercy and consolation.
May this God among us, the Lord Jesus,
be always with you.
And also with you.
