Lighting of the Third Advent Candle:

Leader: We light the candle of hope and peace again as we remember that Christ will come again and bring us everlasting joy. Today we light the third candle which is the candle of love.
People: The third candle of Advent is the Candle of Love. It’s light is meant to remind us of the love that God has for us.
Leader: Jesus shows us God’s perfect love. He is God’s love in human form. The bible says that, “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
People: Love is patient, love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful or conceited, rude or selfish.
Leader: Love is not quick to take offense, it keeps no records of wrongs, but rejoices in the right, the good and the true. Love never ends.
All: We light this candle today to remind us of how God’s love is found in Jesu
