A New Advent Meditation

Here is my new Advent meditation for 2008.   I always have fun putting these together and I hope that you enjoy them too.  Any feedback or suggestions on what you would like to see in next year’s video would be appreciated.  Music featured is “Christ Child Lullaby” from the CD, “A Quiet Knowing Christmas” by Jeff Johnson & Brian Dunning (www.arkmusic.com).

A high quality version can be purchased and downloaded from mustard seed associates

In this Advent season we await the coming of Christ

Child of promise come,

Revealer of God come,

Bringer of life come,

Come to the beaten and the battered,

Come to the despised and rejected

Come to all in whom the divine image is still distorted

We wait in joyful expectation.

Come not as an distant emperor but as a helpless babe

Come not as a prince in a gold palace, but as a displaced and frightened refugee

Come not as a man of power, but in love and compassion

Come to those outcast like shepherds in the field

Come to foreigners like Magi watching from afar

Come to rich and poor, young and old, male and female,

We wait in hopeful anticipation

Come to bless all creation with your love

Come to bring salvation on the earth

Come to rule with justice and in peace

Come Child of promise, open the windows of our hearts

Come Christ of compassion, open the doors of our homes

Come Prince of Peace, open the pathways to our lives

We wait with all the peoples of the earth

Child of hope we welcome your coming

Christ of life we welcome your coming

King of glory we welcome your coming
