a christmas eve prayer for those who do not go to church
December 21, 2011
Lord, I don't go to church much. I don't go at all...Well, I go at Christmas. I'm home then. I feel drawn to it. I like the Christmas Eve service, the coolness of the air. I feel like a child again...it's surreal.
I know folks make fun of people like me. What can I say? I've drifted...but there is a pull back.
Are You speaking to me?
I hear something in the sermon, sometimes, but mostly it's the music and the candles. What is it about those candles? And the darkness?The darkness...or maybe it's the light, I suppose. Light and darkness.
I know about light and darkness. I live in both. I've got some of both in me. I'm basically a good person, I think, but I struggle...I know about light and darkness. But I want to be closer to the light. I want to light that candle and sing those words:
"And in the dark street shineth, the everlasting light..."
I would like to live in that light, Lord.I would like to come home. I would like to be born again.
