Western Road URC's Advent Candle Readings
Daniel: Today on the fourth Sunday of Advent, we light an Advent candle.
Erin: The brightness of the candle reminds us of God’s glory that shone around the shepherds when they heard the angels’ first Christmas greetings: ‘Do not be afraid.’ We pray that God’s glory will reign on earth as it does in the highest heaven.
Daniel: We Light the candle for Peace
Erin: We read From ‘Luke 1.78-79’: By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.’
Prayer of Peace:
Quiet the worries and fears in our hearts.
Give us your peace,
Let there be peace among the nations,
Peace in our homes,
and peace in our hearts
Thank you for the life you share with us
thank you for enabling us to share your life with others.
Come Lord Jesus. Amen
