O God of all creation, we thank you for this night. The stars call to the northern lights, and the winter moon whispers to the snow-filled clouds. All the world is hushed awaiting the birth of peace and joy and salvation. As the great white bear traverses arctic expanses, cross the interstellar reaches to touch all that lives; as the blue jay calls from frost covered branch, call out your message of liberation and of deep community; as the beluga spouts warm breath into the perishing cold of winter night, breathe your Spirit into this place and these hearts, that Christ might be glorified in our worship and in our lives. Amen.
Thanks to Alan C for emailing this to me.
