Advent Devotions

by Anne Broyles

You can buy an Advent wreath or make your own by setting four candles in a circle and surrounding them with greenery. Advent wreaths usually have three purple candles and one pink candle, or four purple candles. If your wreath has a pink candle, light it on the third Sunday of Advent. A taller, white candle (the “Christ candle”), representing Jesus, goes in the center.

First Sunday of Advent

One: Jesus is coming! Advent is our time to prepare for his birth.

All: The light of the candle and the light of God’s word help us get ready.

Light the first candle.

Read Isaiah 2:1-5.
