Advent 3b

L          Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) Let us confess the ways we fail to lives of rejoicing, prayer and thanksgiving

Time for confession and reflection

C          Restore our fortunes, O Lord (that) those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy (for) you have done great things for us, and we are glad indeed. (Psalm 126:3-5)

L          “….proclaim the year of the LORD's favor… to provide for those who mourn…to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. Isaiah 61:2, 3
