An Advent wreath with a wooden manger scene.

Bright and shining star
Who guides us,
And shows us the Perfect Light.
We watch with thankfulness and hope,
As you drive back the darkness
Of doubt and fear.
Renew our faith,
Increase our vision,
Restore our courage to stand against evil
And injustice.
Embody your Love in us today.
