"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this."

Activity: Advent Wreath
Today is the fourth Sunday of Advent. We light the fourth candle on our wreath. It is the third purple candle. Say a prayer or sing a hymn with your children as you light the wreath. Once again, there is no set form that you must follow, but here is an example...
"Father, we light this candle to thank you for your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, who is the Prince of Peace. We have found peace in the promise of eternal life, through Jesus Christ. We give you thanks and praise in Jesus' name, because he lives and reigns with you in your glory, and in the unity of the Holy Spirit, Amen."
