READING: Matthew 2. 13-23
PRAYER FOR THE WEEK: (Roots for Churches)
Lord thank you for all the ways you speak to us by your Holy Spirit:
through the bible (open hands like book)
through your creation (draw a ‘globe’ in the air)
in a whisper (cups hands round mouth as if whispering)
in a shout (everyone shout: HELLO!)
when we are by ourselves (wrap arms around self)
or when we are with others in your family (point to each other)
while we are awake (open eyes wide)
or while we are dreaming (pretend to be sleeping.
Thank you, God, that you want to speak to us
Help us to listen to you, like Joseph did.
