During any lectionary year, the first Sunday after Christmas can create an exhausting week for clergy and church staff. Therefore, this liturgy is designed to offer rest for church leadership so they can be present with their families and loved ones throughout the Christmas season, while also providing meaningful worship for your community.

Centered around the story of young Jesus staying behind in the temple, this liturgy is designed for individuals and families—including children—to walk through together, screen-free. It can also be adapted for an intimate in-person or online communal worship service.

Liturgy written by Rev. Sarah (Are) Speed.

  • An Advent wreath or candle with a lighter or matches.

  • A Bible.

  • Blank paper or a journal.

  • A cell phone or computer to play music (from Spotify).
