An Advent prayer from Martha Moore-Keish, J.B. Green Professor of Theology:
Light of the world,
We feel the darkness pressing in all around us.
The bombs rain down.
The bullets fly.
The forces of oppression bear down on bodies of color in this and every land.
And what do you offer us, O Lord of mercy? Not much.
A spark of light.
A morsel of bread.
A wailing child.
May this light scatter the darkness.
May this bread multiply and feed our aching hunger.
May the cries of this child awaken a sleepy world,
That we may see You again among us: O Light, O Bread, O Child of the Living One.
