This worship series for Advent and Christmas is from a group called “A Sanctified Art.”  They provide scripture reflections and beautiful images for worship. Their guiding question this season has been, “How Does a Weary World Rejoice?”  And from Luke’s gospel, they provided these prompts.  How does a weary world rejoice?

  • We acknowledge our weariness
  • We find joy in human connection, in holy friendship
  • We sing of peace on earth
  • We sing over all God’s children songs of justice and joy

On Christmas Eve the prompt was:

  • We make room for miracles, for hospitality, for joy.


For the presentation of Jesus in the Temple and the meeting with Simeon and Anna, the prompt for today is:

  • We root ourselves in ritual.

We find joy when we root ourselves in ritual.
