Bible readings for today
St John the Evangelist
1st Sunday of Christmas
Collect for the First Sunday of Christmas
you set the promise of your coming in the hearts of your people;
your Son was revealed to Anna and Simeon
who had waited faithfully with hope.
Through the power of your Spirit inspire each generation
to wait patiently and expectantly
for your coming into the world again,
that, like them, we might rejoice and turn to you.
Through Jesus Christ our Liberator,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
God is light (1 John 1:1-5)
We hereby give you permission (not that you need it, however) to not run anything on the 27th of December! Go and eat ice-cream, look at the Pohutakawa trees and see God in creation and nature.
