Hope and Love.
The first two candles in Advent.
Buzz words for sure.
A term thrown around.
Used to make a point.
Added for emphasis.
Meant to show tolerance.
Used to elevate social consciousness.
Definition of Christ.
One who gave all, for all.
For I have come down from heaven not to do
my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
Love personified at Christmas.
Born in a manger.
Humbled before men.
Servant; yet King.
We light these two candles; side by side.
One. . . next to the other.
Dispelling the darkness.
The son of man.
The hope of all Nations.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Love and hope; gifts.
Not self seeking or loud.
Love watches the needs of others.
I Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
