An invitation to prayer through the words of John 1:1-18
(Gospel text for RCL Christmas 2, Cycle C)
The online scriptorium of author and pastor Matthew Burden
I'm taking a couple weeks away from the blog as I celebrate the Christmas holiday with my family. I will, however, continue putting up the weekly Scripture-prayer videos on Fridays, so you can look for those on the 24th and the 31st. Merry Christmas!
"Missions, after all, is simply this: every heart with Christ is a missionary; every heart without Christ is a mission field."
- attributed to Count Ludwig von Zinzendorf
O God, who giv’st the winter’s cold
As well as summer’s joyous rays,
Us warmly in Thy love enfold,
And keep us through life’s wintry days.
- from a hymn by Samuel Longfellow
