Reader: The nursing child shall play over the hole of the serpent, and the weaned child shall put its hand on the adder's den.

All: In peace, let us worship God! *Hymn of Gathering #9 O Come, O Come, Emmanuel VENI EMMANUEL Prayer of Confession Betsy Koehler Most gracious and loving God, forgive us for our lack of imagination for what is possible. Remind us that peace, justice and love are not simply visions for a future time, but your requirements for today. Reveal to us our sinfulness and our brokenness. By your mercy and grace, forgive us, and help us to repent and walk in the way of Jesus, John the Baptist, and the prophets before him. May we overcome our resistance and fears, and live with open and loving hearts as we prepare the way for the Christ Child once again. We pray this in Christ's name and offer our own silent confessions...
