Third Monday of Advent

Please read Luke 22:14-20

Grain of gentleness,
feed us on that simple
loaf made glory by
the yeast of your love,
so we might laugh
in delight
as we gorge ourselves
on your joy;

Grail of grace:
fill our empty souls
with that spirit of
generosity and spontaneity,
so we might pour
ourselves out for those
who sit beside the
dusty wells of hope;

Chief Cook and Bottle Washer:
pushing tables together
so each may have a seat,
bringing out dish after dish
of wondrous delight,
yelling back over your
'better put another fatted calf
on the grill!'
