Enact love

Jesus of the dramatic word, from you we sometimes hear dystopia

of suns and moons and clouds and skies all falling

And we miss the small words of love that can sustain us through the winter

In the dramas of our news cycles

help us all – parishioners, preachers and politicians –

to enact love in the corners, queues and questions of our day

and in so doing discover you,

hiding in the corner, reaching out,

as you always did, creating community

Padraig O’Tuama, Advent Prayer
