Hymn       Lord Speak to Me #589

Scripture Lessons:     Isaiah 65:17-25

                                   Isaiah 12:1-6 p.880VU

                                   Luke 21:5-19


Prayer:  Walk with us, God, through sharp, frosty days and bright crunchy leaves into winter. 
Rest with us by warm fireside’s and tell us stories into the night. 
Take us out at night and show us the stars and fill us with wonder. 
Bless us and our families, our friends, and our neighbours with love and with courage. 
And never let us forget the stranger who needs to share our wealth, our shelter, and our hope. Amen. 
(a prayer by Ruth Burgess, printed in the Iona Community’s Acorns and Archangels)
