God of Creation,
As we wait in hope and expectation this Advent, we feel your constant presence in the beauty of your Creation. When we rejoice at Jesus’ birth this Christmas, help us to remember that you also come to us in every child that is born, and in the trees, lakes, deserts and mountains that surround us. Help us to see the coming of Christ in the whole of the Earth. Guide us with your loving light, and embolden us to live out your call to honor and protect all of your Creation.
