Twelfth Day of Christmas/Second Sunday of Christmas
We worship you today as the God who comes to us to comfort us and to challenge us.
Thank you that you are with us to comfort us when we are grieving, when we are anxious, when we are searching, and when we are sick.
Thank you that you are with us to challenge us when we are arrogant, when we are complacent, when we are apathetic, and when we are wrong.
Give us grace to accept your comfort and give us grace to accept your challenge; give us wisdom to know which one we need.
May our worship today be pleasing to you as we praise you for all the ways that you come to us.
