MALACHI 3:1-4; CANTICLE 19 (LUKE 1:68-79); PHILIPPIANS 1:3-11; LUKE 3:1-6A
Eucharist Service - December 5, 2021


Almighty God, who sent your servant John the Baptist to prepare your people to welcome the Messiah, inspire us, the ministers and stewards of your truth, to turn our disobedient hearts to you, that when the Christ shall come again to be our judge, we may stand with confidence before his glory; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Second Candle

The second candle is purple and represents faith. It is called the "Bethlehem Candle" as a reminder of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem.
