Today we light the 4th candle on the Advent wreath, the candle of joy. As we sing “Joy to the world, the Lord has come” let us remember what the gift of the Christ Child means to us. Let us also remember others who need compassion and support, those whose hearts are hurting. Christmas is the perfect time to share God’s love and what we believe in a compassionate, loving way. After all, isn’t that what gift giving is all about? Let’s share our joy of a loving Savior with those who need His peace and comfort in their lives.
