Last Sunday we lit the candle of Peace. The second candle of Advent is the Candle of Love. It’s light is meant to remind us of the love that God has for us. Jesus shows us God’s perfect love. He is God’s love in human form. The bible says “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful or conceited, rude or selfish. Love is not quick to take offense, it keeps no records of wrongs, it does not gloat over other people’s troubles, but rejoices in the right, the good, and the true. There is nothing that love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, to its hope, to its endurance. Love never ends. This Sunday I am excited to give the pulpit to LeAnn Stoltenburg., as we hear God’s teaching on love.
