On the Third Sunday of Advent we lit a Third candle:
the candle of JOY.
If you have advent candles at home – light Three candles each day until next Sunday.
Here is a Prayer you might like to use as you do so:
We light this candle to mark the great things that God does for us and that in Jesus he brings joy to us all.
God by his prophets promised joy even amid difficulties.
We are God’s children:
Lord make us one in the joy of your Spirit today and forever. Amen.
The birth of the Messiah – Matthew 1.21-25
