First Reading:
+
2nd Advent (purple)
"The first week of Advent is all about hope.
+
Think about hope as you hear Lamentations 3: 21-24:
+
“But this I call to mind,
+
and therefore I have hope:
+
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
+
God’s mercies never come to an end;
+
they are new every morning;
+
great is your faithfulness.
+
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
+
“therefore I will hope in the Lord.”"
+
  
The Candle is lit.
+
Reader 1: Today we light two candles- the first Candle is called HOPE and it is a reminder that God's promises are true.
 +
 
 +
Reader 2: The second Candle is called PEACE, God's gentle loving peace for our lives.
 +
 
 +
Reader 3: We seek God's peace in this time of stress.
 +
 
 +
Reader 4: Come, all is ready. Let the light of these candles, called HOPE and PEACE, bring brightness to your spirits.
 +
 
 +
[The first and second purple Advent Candles are lighted]
  
Prayer together in Chat:
 
"Gracious God, As the Advent season begins, we cry out to you. We come to you looking for hope. When everything else we rely on fails us, our only hope is in you. When we do not understand what has happened, we hope in you. We can hope for better days because we trust you. We know you and we know you are here with us no matter what we are facing. Some of us see only darkness this time of year. Some of us find life overwhelming. Some of us are filled with Advent joy. Wherever we find ourselves today, Loving God, remind us that our hope is in you. Be with us on this journey. Amen."
