* Responsive Reading       Psalm 119:97-105                                

 

Oh, how I love your law!

It is my meditation all day long.

 

Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is always with me.

I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your decrees are my meditation.

 

I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts.

I hold back my feet from every evil way, in order to keep your word.

 

I do not turn away from your ordinances, for you have taught me.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

 

Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore, I hate every false way.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor.

 

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, upon many waters.

The voice of the Lord is powerful, the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

 

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,

The Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.

 

The Lord makes Lebanon to skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.

 

The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness,

The Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

 

The voice of the Lord makes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forests bare;

And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

 

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as Ruler for ever.

May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!

* Responsive Reading       Song of Solomon 2:8-17                                

 

The voice of my beloved! Look, he comes, leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the hills.

My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag. Look, there he stands behind our wall, gazing in at the windows, looking through the lattice.

 

My beloved speaks and says to me: Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away;

For now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.

 

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.

The fig tree puts forth its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance.

 

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see your face,

 

Let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.

Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that ruin the vineyards – for our vineyards are in blossom.

 

My beloved is mine and I am his; he pastures his flock among the lilies.

Until the day breathes and the shadows flee.

LIGHTING THE CHRIST CANDLE   –   LEEVY FAMILY

 

The fifth and final candle of Advent represents Jesus Christ. This candle signifies the ultimate reason for our Christmas journey—the baby Jesus, God’s only Son, the Savior of the world. Jesus is truly the reason for and the meaning of Christmas, and He is the source of all the gifts we’ve discovered on this Advent journey—hope, love, joy, and peace. Celebrate the birth of Jesus! The waiting is almost over; the Messiah is coming. And even as we celebrate His arrival in our world, our anticipation grows—and we continue to live with longing and expectation for His second coming when His work will be complete and all the earth will be restored. Yet even now on the eve of Jesus’s birth, we rejoice. Christ has come! He will come again!

(Family says)

 

The fourth Sunday of Advent signifies love and reminds us that Jesus was sent to us because of God’s great love for us.

Let this reality be your focus this week no matter what else you are going through: Jesus is God’s love embodied in our world and infused into our lives to heal us and draw us together. Experience the depth of His love and allow that love to overflow to others in grace and unity. Let love fill your days and nights as Christmas draws close!

 

*Responsive Reading                         

 

From Luke 2:16-20 we hear “So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

 

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

 

 

 

 

From John 3:16 we are told “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,

That whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
