Liturgy for the Fourth Sunday of Advent

Fourth Candle:
The Love and Angels Candle

We Celebrate the growing brightness & We Celebrate that His coming is closer!

The angels were the first creatures to proclaim the coming…

They came to Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, Zechariah, and to the shepherds…
to tell them that God was going to send a Savior so that we would know that He loves us!

Voice 1: The Fourth Candle of Advent is the Candle of Love.

Its light reminds us of the love that God had for us!

John 3:16
For God so loved the world
that He gave His only Son…

Voice 2: Jesus shows us God’s perfect love… He is God’s love in human form.

Voice 3: Love is patient… Love is kind and envies no one.Love is never boastful or conceited, rude or selfish. Love is not quick to take offense, it keeps no record of wrongs, it does not gloat over other people’s troubles but rejoices in the right, the
good, and the true. There is nothing that love cannot face; there is no limit to its
faith…to its hope…Love never fails!

Voice 4: We light this candle today to remind us of
how God’s perfect love is found in Jesus.

~Light the Three Purple Candles,
And the One Rose Candle~

Loving God,
We thank You for your love!
Thank you for Jesus.
Help us to receive the Gift of Your son.
Help us to be worthy of that love
by loving others in Your name.

Love Came Down at Christmas
