Opening Litany

Opening Litany (read responsively or with each person saying a line)
Advent is. . .
A pilgrimage of the soul
A child’s delight
A journey to our own Bethlehem where something new waits to be born.
Advent is. . .
Responding to a deep yearning
Going on a quest
Following a star to a place of wonder and joy.
Advent is. . .
Bright lights and Christmas trees
Watching and anticipating
Waiting for a Baby’s cry, the angels’ song, and the whole world rejoicing.
Advent is our journey to the manger together.
