The Third Sunday of Advent – December 16, 2012

12 Dec

The Third Sunday of Advent

The third candle, lit on the third Sunday of advent (this year December 16, 2012) with the first two, is the Shepherds’ candle. We are reminded that God sent the angels to proclaim His  arrival to common man and that He still uses ordinary people today to spread the good news of Christ. This candle is pink or rose and represents God’s love and faithfulness.

Suggested Bible reading: Isaiah 52:7 and Luke 2:8-20.
