Advent Reading

Isaiah 11 says: The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

Prepare the way of the Lord. We light this candle in peace, the peace that Jesus, our Savior, gives to the world.

Prepare the way of the Lord.

Luke 2 says: in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Prepare the way of the Lord. We light this candle in joy, for Jesus makes joy from our sorrow.

Advent Reading

In the season of Advent, we wait for the arrival of Jesus, our Lord and our one true hope.

Isaiah 2 says: He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

God of hope, we wait for you with open and eager hearts. Come, Lord Jesus.
