As Christmas rapidly approaches and I survey our world with its pain and suffering I was reminded of this prayer that I wrote a couple of years ago. It is my favourite Advent prayer and I love to revisit (and repost it) each year.
How do we make room at this season for all the marginalized people in our society and our world? How do we reach out to bring peace and not violence, healing not disease, wholeness and not destruction? How do we make room for all those who are despised and abandoned not just at this time of year but at all times?
