9th December – 2nd Sunday in Advent – Shared Blessings

Tricia has picked today’s poem: Shared Blessings by Duncan Turk

As we continue on our Advent journey,
may we know that God is there.
By the strength of His Spirit,
share our faith with the uncertain;
share our love with the unloved;
share our presence with the lonely;
And share God with everyone,
just as God has shared with us
in the unfading blessing of Jesus Christ.


This poem was sent to us by Tricia who says,  “For me this is a reminder amongst all the busyness of preparations at this time of the year that prayer and friendship go hand in hand with those who need that companionship and will receive a blessing as a result.”


Loving God,
Our hearts and minds are full of our own needs and desires;
Help us to be open to you that we may share your blessings showered upon us
with those we meet  in these coming Advent days
bringing friendship and companionship.
