A Grace for Christmas Dinner

The photo on the left is one of a breakfast that was prepared for us at The Maeven Gypsy.  This is a B&B on  the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia.

In the classic novel by Charles Dickens, called “A Christmas Carol”, the final words are attributed to Tiny Tim. The words that Dickens uses to conclude this timeless, and popular novel are:

“God Bless Us, Every One!”

A friend has sent me what is called a “Dickens Grace” that might be used when we gather around a table with family and friends. I am offering an invitation for all of us to use the following words when we gather to celebrate Christmas dinner in 2011. The “grace” from the Dickens Fellowship reads:

             

                 In fellowship assembled here,

                        we thank thee, Lord,

                       for food and cheer.

                and through our Saviour, thy dear Son,

                we pray: ‘God bless us, every one.’

                Amen.
