Western Road URC's Advent Candle Readings
Alexander: When Jesus spoke again to the people, we read from John 8 v12, Jesus said, 'I am the light of the world’. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. The nations will walk by this light and all people will see God’s glory”.
We Light the Advent candle for Light
Alexander: We read Based on Ephesians chapter 5 “Live as children of light” …. Follow God’s example and follow the path he has shown us, even when there may be challenges ahead. “Follow God’s example, and walk in the way of love just as Christ loved us and find out what pleases the Lord”
Prayer of Light:
now it is time to share and celebrate the Christmas festival of lights
send the radiance of your light to shine in our hearts.
Help us remember that Jesus is the light of the world
Help us follow the right path even when this may be challenging
Make us true to your teaching;
keep us free from error and sin.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
