ReJoice !

Advent week 3

we light the

pink candle of


 O Come, God of our Joy,

O Flower of Jesse’s Stem, Come…

we join our hearts and voices

with those across the world,

across time and space,

As we joyfully anticipate your coming.

We marvel at the way you use

the least likely among us,

the youngest son of Jesse to become the King,

a young, poor, unknown virgin to bear your son.

a servant rather than a warrior to be our King.

Your Son ruled not by laying down the law,

but by laying down his life.

As we rejoice in the fulfillment of your promise of salvation and celebrate the birth of your son.

May our reflections, our prayers,

our words and actions bring joy to you,

our God of surprises, and of salvation.
