Christmas Candle Lighting, 2010

Christmas Eve/Day

Friday, Dec. 24th (in the evening) or Saturday, Dec. 25th, 2010

 

Candle Lighting: Light one large white candle.

 

Question: Why do we light this candle?

Response: We light this candle because the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

 

Scripture: Read John 1: 1-13

 

Prayer:

Thank You for the gift of Your Son,

full of grace and truth

and that we have seen his glory and light.

Thank You that we may be born of You,

through Christ, with Christ and in Christ.   Amen.

And the Word became flesh and lived among us,

and we have seen his glory,

the glory as of a father’s only son,

full of grace and truth. ~John 1:14
