When the Wise Men told Herod they came to worship a King, Herod’s throne was under threat. Like one single candle, the baby Jesus’ life could have so easily been snuffed out. A reading for the Advent season—the lighting of the Christ Candle—that announces Jesus is the Light of the World.
What others are saying:
We used all 5 readings in our Advent services this year. Thank you! They added a beautiful depth and focus for our times together and brought important insight into much about that first Christmas, but also to our ongoing need for the hope, peace, joy, love and presence of our Savior.
~ Pastor Kelly Sikstrom
