Statement About Our Advent Metaphor of Light and Darkness
Call to Worship and Music Video -
A Long Christmas Dinner
Lighting the First Advent Candle - Based on Genesis 1:1-5
One: In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the Earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep.
All: A wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light."
One: And there was light. And God saw that the light was good.
All: God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness God called Night.
One: And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
