12/13 Sunday Advent daybook, 15: I will bring you home

My Advent daybook for these 24 days of waiting. Join me, won't you? (see previous Advent daybook 2015 posts here)

Community First Village in Austin, TX
a 27-acre master-planned community to provide dignified work and affordable housing for Austin's chronically homeless

(Also: Watch Part 1 & Part 2)

Zephaniah 3:14-20:  At that time I will bring you home, at the time when I gather you; for I will make you renowned and praised among all the peoples of the earth, when I restore your fortunes before your eyes, says the LORD. 

all readings for the day Zephaniah 3:14-20  •  Isaiah 12:2-6  • Philippians 4:4-7  • Luke 3:7-18

God of hope, you call us home from the exile of selfish oppression to the freedom of justice, the balm of healing, and the joy of sharing. Make us strong to join you in your holy work, as friends of strangers and victims, companions of those whom others shun, and as the happiness of those whose hearts are broken. We make our prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (source)
