O Morning Star,
You are the first hint
Of a new light.
You throw into sharp relief
The deep glory of darkness,
And dazzle the people
Who have dwelt in it so long.
Come, shine through the darkness
Of grace-filled, pain-pierced lives
To bring hope to those who wait.
#adventbookclub runs from 1st December until Epiphany. This year we are using “The Art of Advent” by Jane Williams, and raising some money for Mercy UK, a mental health charity over at the JustGiving page here. Search #adventbookclub on Twitter or Facebook to join in the conversation.
