O God, as we remember your advent on this holy night, we celebrate your gift of light and life. As we sing "O Little Town of Bethlehem, help us remember your people who are still suffering in the place of your birth, and in all the conflicted places around the world. Help us be agents of your peace, bringing your light and life to the world. Amen.
