An advent prayer about creation and incarnation. 

God, ever Ancient, ever New,
you are a spiral of joy,
dancing over a dark earth, and
entering it with strength in your arm.

But tenderly you come to us:
like unnoticed dew,
refreshing and giving life;
like silent dawn,
scattering any darkness;
like gentle rain,
cleansing and renewing;
like whispering breeze,
stirring our inaction;
as sleeping baby,
demonstrating your love for the world.

God, though you are God,
took nine months like everyone else.

It is the Lord’s Day;
the Day of our God.
And our day too;
the day for all peoples!

Come to us, now,
find us ready and waiting,
with strength in our arms.
