Last night the Sr. Hi’s, aka the God Squad gathered around my fireplace to talk about their hopes and fears. We wrote them on flying prayer paper. We set the paper on fire and watched as the “prayers” gently wafted up in the air. After each person we paraphrased a line from O Little Town of Bethlehem: “our hopes and fears are met in you O God.” As we continue in this season of Advent what hopes and fears do you lift to God. We have the assurance that God will gently keep those hopes and dispel our fears as we live into the love of God.
