Sunday: The Light of His Joy

The Advent Wreath is a tradition that the Church has practiced for centuries! Each Sunday of Advent another candle is lit in honor of what Christ brought to us by becoming the incarnate God. 

The ring, often made of evergreen leaves, represents eternity. The Joy found in the promises of our God will last forever. 


Take a moment of silence to focus your thoughts.

A prayer of thanksgiving to God for providing Joy through Jesus.

A prayer of request that you might be a bringer of Joy  to your neighbors this Advent season.
