Waiting for Joy: the Third Week in Advent

(For background and the first two weeks of this devotional for individuals and families, see posts labeled Advent)

December 14th, The Third Sunday in Advent We are waiting for Joy
Begin with silent meditation

Light the first three candles of your Advent wreath or your chalice with these words:
“For you shall go out in joy, and be led back in peace; all the mountains and the hills before you shall burst into song, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)

What are the simple things that give you joy? Again, encourage examples that are simple, not material, and can be shared.

End with a prayer or silence: A prayer:

We gather together in joy. May our feet bring the good news of great joy to all people today and everyday. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
