Bible readings, reflections and prayers for Advent, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
This little book is for all those who find themselves serving, eating, resting and singing in diners (real and metaphorical) in this holy season, and in all the days before and after – in hope that there they will discover God, serving and eating and resting and singing and welcoming them with open arms.

Help us to search the shadows for your children, God of Advent,
so we may take them by the hand,
bring them into the light of hope and grace,
honour them for their gifts
and recognise them for who they are:
your beloved children.
