December 2, the First Sunday's Readings

Light a purple candle for "Hope."

A suggested prayer:  "Lord, Father, God, we light this candle to thank you for your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, who is the light of the world.  We who have sat in darkness have seen a great light, the light of Jesus, our salvation.  We give you thanks and praise, all in His name.   Amen."

Isaiah 11:1-10
Luke 1:26-38
Isaiah 7:10-14
Matthew 1:18-24*

Extinguish the candle.

I will be doing this with a fourth grader I know each Monday with the hope her mom will continue on Sundays during winter break, and because our time is short, I am doing an alternate plan:
Isaiah 9:1-2 and Isaiah 60:2-3


  1. Thanks for posting this early! I work tomorrow night so today is our Sabbath & I'm glad we can start tonight!

  2. I'll aim to post every Saturday then! Here and on facebook.

  3. I thank you too. You reminded me to get my advent wreath together tonight. Hope indeed!


I'd like to be humble and say I only blog to record the doings of my life, but really, I blog for conversation, and I would love to hear from you. It's okay if you don't agree with me, that's what makes life interesting.
