Prayer

Loving and giving God, help us this day to praise you in whatever form you guide us toward.  Help us to receive the Christ in this current moment.  Show us how to give ourselves to dance and cymbal and shout and strings this Christmas season.  Guide our feet in the way of peace and justice and praise.  Amen (Rev. Scott Lawrence).

  1. What charming and colorful photos of Christmas scenes. I do love them. Thank you for sharing them. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    • Thanks for dropping by, Matti! Christmas reminds me of bold colors, but what came across was the golden ambiance. Appropriate for the season, I suppose. Still, the way these photos came together was reminiscent of those very special sacred spaces. Here’s wishing y’all a delightful Sunday!

  2. Many thanks, Deli!!! Blessings, Ning
