Since I finished working full time in school one of my problems has been sometimes not knowing which day of the week it is! The very regular pattern of the school week, even the aroma of fish and chips every Friday, used to make that much easier!
I try to remember every Friday to remind followers on Facebook and Twitter about the MWiB website Prayer for the Week. I did not remember to post it this time until yesterday, so thought I would also include it in the blog tonight. Hazel leads us to reflect further on the wonder of the incarnation. The prayer is accompanied by a reading from Isaiah and also suggests the use of a beautiful modern hymn by Graham Kendrick, ‘Like a candle flame’, which can be found in Singing the Faith, number 176. The refrain reminds us of the truth of Emmanuel:
God is with us, alleluia.
Come to save us, alleluia.
