*here in Scotland our news headline is the engagement announced this morning between Prince Harry & Meghan Markel… 

Holy One
we give thanks for good news of great joy!!
The trumpets blast and our hearts soar…
It’s just a wedding
but it will carry with it diplomacy, and new relations between two nations.

Holy One
we give thanks for good news of great joy!
The trumpets blast and angels voices sing
“Glory to God!”
Advent is coming
we answer the call
“Come thou long expected Jesus”
O Come, O Come Emmanuel”
Come we pray!
Come we call!
Come, fill our expectant hearts with the joy and anticipation as we, once again, prepare for the season of preparation, and get ready to remember and welcome once more
God With Us
God, setting up home with us.
Holy, holy, holy One!
Come thou rod of Jesse, Come
Amen
