Advent Call to Worship: Waiting

Here’s an Advent call to worship (or a wonderful introduction to the reading of scripture during Advent) from  Roddy Hamilton’s Mucky Paws website.

Call to Worship for Advent: Waiting

Across the universe
creation waits
for the prophets to speak
their words of expectation
and their vision of renewal

May we gather round them today
once more
and let their longing grip us
and lead us
into birth and blessing

So come now my friends
this is the meeting place
of promise and prophecy
let us listen through the ancient words
that we might be ready to hear 
a baby’s cry
