Today marks the third Sunday of Advent, a holy season where we reflect and prepare for the coming of Christ Jesus our Lord.
This third week, Christians often reflect on the biblical theme of Joy. The Bible Project has put together another great animated video exploring how the Bible talk about Joy.
At St. Luke's we take time each week in Advent to light the candles in our Advent Wreath. While we are not all gathering together in our Parish Church at this time, we can still carry on this tradition from our homes.
The Candle Lighting liturgy can be found in our Service of Morning Prayer. If you have candles at home you can light them during your practice of these home prayers, or you can follow along with our Advent Lighting Video.
Many blessings to you this third week of Advent, and may the Holy Spirit fill us with the Joy of the LORD.
