Advent Activity Calendar - December 7

Scripture Reading:

John 3:16-17

"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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."

Country in Focus: Germany

Tradition: Advent Wreath

Activity: Advent Wreath

Today is the second Sunday of Advent. We light the second purple candle on our wreath. 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. We, who like sheep that have gone astray, have found the way to you 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."
