Advent Bible Reading
Malachi 3.1-4, 23-24
He shall turn the hearts of fathers towards their children
And the hearts of children towards their fathers.
Lord may the power of your Gospel
restore in us the desire to listen to the young and to the old,
to rejoice in the wisdom of each generation,
to be thrilled by what the others have to offer.
Help us to build your church as a family of peoples
where love and respect conquer division and fear.
