It’s the first week of Advent. Let’s rehearse and tell again the good news that our faith and hope is in the Lord. Did you see little eyes in this video get big when lighting the candle? Good news spoken or practiced, even through little things like lighting a candle, can help your soul expand as wide as little eyes as we wait in faith for the Lord. You don’t need a formal wreath with just-so colors, ordinary will do. The One you need has already come. And He still rescues.
For a quick, repeatable practice, let your voice carry the words below so little liturgies echo around you this season.
Leader: The Lord is our faith and our life.
ALL: May the Lord’s peace be with us all.
Leader: And His love shines in our hearts.
ALL: Our hope is in the coming of the Lord.
(Light one purple candle.)
Leader: Let us pray that our faith may be strengthened for the coming of the Lord. (Any additional prayer as desired.)
