#adventbookclub Day 24: O King of the Nations

O King of the Nations,

You meet us in all our humanity,

Our vulnerability and fallibility,

And call us into another way

Of being human.

In your power, you teach us

That the fate of the world

Is not in our gift,

But in yours.

You become lowly

To draw us back

To our own lowliness

And meet you there.

Come, make us more like you,

And do not let us make you

In our own imperfect image.

#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.
