Advent 2 – Love – December 6,  2020 Order of Worship

Welcome and Announcements: Includes showing the decorated church

Lighting the Advent Candle – Love:

We gather on this second Sunday of Advent as one of many
congregations from around the world united by Christ’s love.

As we light the second candle, the candle of love we give thanks as we remember
love became incarnate in the form of the Christ child.
Emmanuel—God with us- ever present and ever faithful.
May we continue this Advent journey together confident of God’s immeasurable
love for us may we – expectant that what is being birthed within us will
become blessings to others.

Prayer: Let us Pray
Your love, O God, is holy and supreme.
Teach us Your way of love, and help us to walk in it.
In the blessing of your covenant, you created us a community of your love.
In the fullness of time you sent us Jesus, a man of love that risked all for the sake of the world.
In your resurrection power, you have revealed your love to all humanity.
Help us, O God, to reveal your love as we discover anew the tremendous power of the Christmas story and meet again the Christ-child, born anew among us.
Teach us the way of love, and help us to walk in it.
Amen and Amen.

Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no

our Lord. Amen.

Hymn of Praise: I Wonder as I Wander  (from last year’s Candlelight Service, Steve Hawkins, soloist)

I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever;
with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
I declare that your steadfast love is established forever;
