Genesis 1:3 says, “Then God said, ‘Let there be light;’ and there was light.” These words draw us into the creation story.
‘Let there be light’ is also a good way to enter into Advent. The season of Advent is an opportunity for us to prepare for Christ’s birth and return. On the first Sunday of Advent we light one candle. It is a small representation of the hope that we have in a dark world.
Each week we light one more candle, and the light grows. Then on Christmas Eve we light the four Advent candles and the Christ candle, a visible symbol of the promise we have in Jesus. He is the light of the world, the light no darkness can overcome.
Join us each week in worship during Advent as we explore together this theme, “Let there be light,” and look at stories from the prophets and the gospels to help us prepare for Christmas.Share
