Third Sunday of Advent

“On that day I will raise up
    the booth of David that is fallen,
and repair its breaches,
    and raise up its ruins,
    and rebuild it as in the days of old;  Amos 9:11

the broken relationships
caused by our judgmental
anger –
heal them with your grace;
the dreams we have ruined
by our insistence on our
way –
turn the ashes into
reality by your hope;
the neighborhoods
we write off because of our
privilege –
restore with your justice
(and our helping hands),
on this day
and every day
