Loving God, we live in a land of winter. Not the winter of the seasons, but the bleak
winter of a life lived far from You. Easter was so long ago. It has been hard to hold on to the
joy of Resurrection in the constant clamor and chatter of a dark world that can only
be illuminated by having more, having it now, having it loud, boisterous, colorful, unsatisfying.
What we truly need is Your light to shine bright among us once more. Remind us again how
You came to live among us, to share our humanity and to show us how to truly live a life in
Your love. Come, O God, again to be among us. Your people wait in hope.
