24 December 2020: Christmas Eve.  Sermon by the Rev Ed Greene


20 December 2020: Fourth Sunday of Advent.  Sermon by the Rev Pam Mott

Our tradition of lighting advent candles can be a reminder of that – of the increasing light of Christ coming into the world, of saying yes to seeing the place where Christ has lit our way, and to be ourselves bearers of the light of Christ – of the increase of hope, faith, joy and peace.  So, take out your candles, if you brought them or find lights to switch on.

We light the first candle and in a moment of silence, consider who has born hope to you, give thanks for that, and pray for the way you can say yes, without fear, to bearing hope into the world.  What one small action can you take to bring the increasing light of Christ’s hope into the world?

We light the second candle and in a moment of silence, consider who has born faith within you.  Give thanks and pray for the way you can say yes, without fear, to bearing faith into the world.  What one small action can you take to bring the increasing light of Christ’s faith into the world?

We light the third candle and in a moment of silence, consider who has born joy to you, and pray for the way you can say yes, without fear, to bearing joy into the world.  What one small action can you take to bring the increasing light of Christ’s joy into the world?

We light the fourth candle and in a moment of silence, consider who has born peace to your life, and pray for the way you can say yes, without fear, to bearing peace into the world.  What one small action can you take to bring the increasing light of Christ’s peace into the world?

Imagine each person here making 4 small commitments to bear Christ into the world, imagine the exponential light of Christ we could shine in world that is so in need of light, so in need of being released from fear.

May we know a rebirth of Christ in us and may we say yes without fear to being bearers of God to each other and into the world.
