Christmas Presence - Asking and Listening

Lord we ask your presence.

We remember that the best present we can give many people, especially the old, the house bound, the lonely etc is our presence - Deep attention and deep listening are the activities of true presence

     Everyone has a story to tell, and when we ask others to share a personal story, they are almost always invigorated.
