Third Sunday of Advent

Yesterday we lit the third Advent candle, the candle of love, to remember John the Baptist and all God's prophets, preparing the way for change, giving signs pointing to a new age to come with the birth of Christ.

The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio, "to come to," and not only refers to our celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas; but also celebrates the coming of Christ into our lives through grace and the Sacrament of Holy Communion; and finally, to His Second Coming at the end of time. As we say in our Communion Service: "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again." So as we lit the candle we also prayed: "God as we wait for your promise, give light, give hope."
