Thought for the Week
from Anglican Mothers Union Australia
Sunday 16th December 2018
Wise men they called them, earnest astrologers,
Watching for meaning in the moving stars,
Science or fantasy, learned or laughable,
Theirs was a vision that was brought to pass.
Sing all you wise men, dance all the scientists,
Whether your theories are false or true,
God uses knowledge, God uses ignorance,
God on his birthday had a need of you.
Michael Hewlett Tis 281; AHB 214
And the Word became flesh and lived among us,
and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a fathers only son,
full of grace and truth.
John 1: 14
Loving God, we ask that you empower our members in Brazil as they serve their communities and as they, with us, observe the season of Advent.
