Advent womb

"We wait in the darkness, expectantly, longingly, anxiously, thoughtfully.
The darkness is our friend.
In the darkness of the womb we have all been nurtured and protected.
In the darkness of the womb,
the Christ-child was made ready for the journey into light.
You are with us, O God, in darkness and light."
 
first stanza of a prayer from the
Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand (adapted)
