Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord

by Daphine L. Strickland
For the First Sunday of Advent
Based on Isaiah 64: 1-9

There is a feeling.
God is preparing to come back to this world
and when he comes, it will be an awesome event.
It will be like nothing we have ever experienced.
Those who know -- you are shouting and dancing, rejoicing!

Those who know not -- you are afraid
and are looking for a hiding place, but there is none.

All of God's people are one.
We come together rejoicing in the presence of God with all of us.
