Today marks the fourth Sunday of Advent, a holy season where we reflect and prepare for the coming of Christ Jesus our Lord.
On this, the fourth week, the Church often reflects upon the theme of love. Here is another great video from the Bible Project exploring the how the Holy Scriptures speak about love.
At St. Luke's we take time each week in Advent to light the candles in our Advent Wreath. Even though all of us are not 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.
This Sunday, we are also holding our Service of Lessons & Carols, where we tell the story of Christmas with alternating Scripture Readings and Songs.
There will be no sermon this week, but stay tuned today for a special gift from our St. Luke's Choir.
Our Service of Morning Prayer and Songs for this week can be found here:
Many blessings to you this fourth week of Advent, and may the Holy Spirit fill us with the Love of Jesus Christ.
