An antidote for a capitalist, consumer Christmas

IMG_0159This morning I encountered an antidote for the capitalist, consumer Christmas that many of us have been suffering through. In our United Church of Canada hymn book, called Voices United, is the following prayer:

God of stable, stars and surprises,

of light and hope and new life:

open our eyes and hearts to your presence in our world;

forgive our obsession with property and possessions;

forgive our compromises and narrowness of vision.

Open us to your grace,

that we might hear again the song of the angels,

and respond with a song in our hearts,

and in our lives. Amen.
