Each Sunday we light a candle to prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus as the light of the world.
The First Sunday in Advent we light the candle of hope.
The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days at at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: "The Lord is our righteousness” Jeremiah 33:14-16
