O God, perhaps

all time is a good time,

every place is a good place

and we should be no respecters of time or space;

each day Christmas

and every building a church

But

we’re not made that way.

 

Grant that

today

may be a good day,

and that we have

a special place of blessing,

a sacred time and space set aside

through Christ our Lord

who is every where always

only because

He was some where

once.

…And the angel Gabriel came to Mary and said, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” But she was much perplexed by his words and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.

   The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his ancestor David.

   Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” The angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called Son of God.

   Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.” Then the angel departed from her. (from Luke 1
