Hope, Peace, Joy and Love are promises offered to us by God, and all of them manifest in this one we light tonight: the Christ Candle. In Christ we find the hope of transformation, the peace that follows justice, the joy of self-fulfillment in community, and the love that encompasses us in all our diversity, empowering us to make our own unique contribution to this world. In Christ we find light and life, and the courage to be like him, answering his call, following in his footsteps.

Is this what you read while we lit candles? I was concentrating too hard trying to get the candles to light to hear what you were saying. 🙂
I'm so glad we lit the advent candle as a family. I think it was very special. Meant a lot to me.
Yes it is.
