ADVENT WEEK ONE Mark 13:33
We have been placed in charge of our God’s household and our common home.
We are each gifted sufficiently and differently.
May we use this present time for vigilance, for courage, for caution, for observation, for risking in God’s Service.
We Watch for Refugees and Immigrants, wounded people,
those suffering from heart-hungers
who need our attention.
We Watch out for lifestyle changes, Signs of Synodality, Truces,
climate shifts, Truth over Speculation
that need our attention.
We Watch over in guardianship, in protection, in care
where there are opportunities for healing.
We Watch in wonder and awe, in fear, in disbelief, in delight, in surprise
where there are personal and communal challenges.
Come, let us stay alert.
