Episode 5: Christmas

December 25, 2021 • Kelley Weber

Dear Jesus, Keep us from conjuring the Christmas we think we should have. Instead, allow us to make space for the Christmas that is, and only is, you. Teach us to stay in the moment of new life a little longer in the moment of enfleshment, of first steps, of gurgling laughter. Help us not to skip over your life, But invite us in as we invite you into our hands and feet to do your work. Show us where we may be bread for the hungry And a cool cup of water for those that thirst. Let Christmas be our own annunciation. Let us see you, Oh God, in all your messy humanness That made blood and tears sacred. Let us gaze into your beloved many faced - face. And whatever we are this day, let it be enough. Anoint our pain with your presence So that we may be present, in the flesh, to our lives. Amen.

Episode 8: Value of Others

January 24, 2022 • Kelley Weber

God of Abraham, Who sustains us through relationship over rightness, Through covenant over correctness. We ask that you speak in and through your church. Teach us to love what you love. Make us mediators of your light to the world. Not the easy light of Sunday school songs, But the radical light of redress and recompense. May the dungeon’s doors be cast wide open and those seasoned fears, those generational wounds Be tended to with our very lives. Teach us to be a community of forgiveness, that draws Endlessly from your love until we learn That we are all, in fact, the other - all of us grasping For love in wrong places. Teach us to reach for one another because the value of the other Is that it is in the other, that we find You. Amen

Episode 7: Forgiveness

January 17, 2022 • Kelley Weber

Dear Lord, we ask that you make us aware of anything we are holding on to that is keeping us stuck regarding this person. It may be small or large, it may be hidden or it may be obvious. Gently, bring to mind what we need to let go of, what we need to forgive.
