Wednesday Worship Piece: Candle-Lighting for Advent 3

Here is our candle-lighting call to worship for the third Sunday of Advent. The Advent Conspiracy theme for this week is “Give More,” and our focus will be on Mary.

One: During these weeks of Advent, we prepare gifts. We look forward with joy to the day we will give these gifts.
All: We rejoice in the abundance that allows us to give good gifts to those we love.
One: O Lord, hear our thankful prayers,
All: And receive our joyful songs.
One: Let us light the candle of joy.

Hymn: Hope is a Candle, verse 4, 40 folder
Scripture: Psalm 97:1, 8-12

One: Let us pray. Holy One, may your presence with us be a spark of joy that we carry even through the deepest darkness. And may this joy prompt us to give freely of our abundance.
All: Let the words of our worship inspire lives of faithful joy and generosity. Amen.
