Advent Reading December 2

Sunday, December 2
And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.”
— Luke 1:46–48
RISE
Beckoning empty skies,
a light comes breaking through
burning ever so powerful.
Painted star of early morn;
its glow will find us peace.
From the kingdom where love is new
break of dawn,
new life unfolding before our eyes.
Glimpse up to the skies embraced in the light.
— Andrew Weatherly
This Advent season, how will you live into God’s promise of a new dawn breaking?
God of Advent, remind us to seek your light always — even when darkness sets in. Amen.
