Advent Wreath and Readings

LEADER: Listen now to the words of the prophet Joel:
Blow a trumpet in Zion, 
And sound an alarm on My holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
For the day of the LORD is coming;
Indeed, it is near.

LEADER:  Today is the first Sunday of Advent: a season of preparation, of watching, and waiting. We remember the prophets of old who spoke of a child to come, one sent by God to bring hope and salvation to God’s people. 

ALL: No one knew when this child would come. Each generation hoped and prayed the Messiah would come in their lifetime.

LEADER: God kept His promise! However, God sent the Messiah, the Christ, in a way no one expected. God sent himself - the very Son of God. In doing so, the incarnate Christ ushered in a new way to be in relationship with God and a new way of living. 

ALL: Christ’s birth renews our hope in the promises of God. We celebrate His first coming and anticipate His second coming. 

LEADER: Today, we light the Prophets’ Candle, as a symbol of our continued hope that Christ is doing new things in our world and in our lives. 

ALL: Christ came, Christ is with us, Christ will come again.
