Here is our candle-lighting call to worship for this coming Sunday. The Advent Conspiracy theme is “Love All.”
One: This morning, two days before Christmas, we light the four candles of Advent: the candles of hope, peace, joy, and love.
All: We gather to worship our God, whose love reaches to the heavens.
One: We gather to be with people we love, people who love us.
All: We rest in God’s unfailing love.
One: Let us light the candle of love.
Hymn: Hope is a Candle, verse 3
Scripture: Psalm 36:5-10
One: Let us pray. Holy One, may your love for us warm our hearts and light our way, that we may share your healing love with a broken world.
All: May this time of worship allow us to bask in your love for us; and may our worship empower us to love all. Amen.
And here is a benediction:
Go forth to live within God’s deep and abiding love.
Go forth to live out God’s deep and abiding love–in the power of our one God: Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
Go in peace.
