Christmas Candle

On the eve of our Christmas celebration, Jesus’ birthday, we light all of the candles of the Advent wreath.

First we light the candle for HOPE because Jesus is our hope.

Second, we light the candle for PEACE because Jesus is our hope and peace.

Third, we light the candle for JOY because Jesus brings joy.

Fourth, we light the candle for LOVE because Jesus is love.

Finally we light the center candle. This is the CHRIST candle. Jesus is born. Jesus has come. Jesus is our salvation.

Let us pray:
Great God of love and light, we thank you now for the light of that
special star over two thousand years ago that guided humble shepherds
and learned wise men to the holy babe. Lead us now, by the light of
your love, that we also may follow you to new life in him. In
celebration of the birthday of our King and our Savior, Jesus Christ,
we pray. Amen.
