Sunday, December 11. 3rd Sunday of Advent. Use the litany on p. 40 in a personal or family Advent meditation. Light three candles, and consider which people in the Christmas story you most identify with. Why do you think that is?
Words from the Word: Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water; the haunt of jackals shall become a swamp, the grass shall become reeds and rushes.
– Isaiah 35:5-7, NRSV
