Advent Wreath – ‘Source of Light’ — Rex Hunt, Australia

Led by the children and leaders of Sunday Club

Advent 1
voice 1 Spontaneous sun
voice 2 generous giver of light,
voice 3 heat and energy…
Light first Advent candle

voice 4  We give thanks that throughout this season of hope
we are warmed by the signs of hope
we see in our world
and in our own lives. (Gretta Vosper/ab).

OR

Advent 1: ‘Earth’
voice 1   Today, we remember the earth and light
with this candle of hope.
All   The earth is home for all creation.
It feeds us and sustains us.

voice 1   Yet, we humans exhaust it and foul it
with our garbage as if we don’t care,
as if we have lost hope for the future of our planet.
(Silence)
voice 2   We light this first advent candle…
The candle is lit

All  and as we do we renew our commitment
to live gently and hopefully on this earth.

voice 1   May it be so.
