Reader: The sixth candle is red reminding us that Christ, who came to Bethlehem and who will come again at the end of the age, comes to us now in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. He was born in Bethlehem so that we might ask Him to come and be born in our hearts.
Reading: The Coming of the Word; John 1:1-18, 6:52-58
Prayer: Lord, help us to make straight the way for You to come to us when we celebrate Your Holy Nativity. Grant us Your grace so that we can be rid of our selfish pride and our many sins. Grant us tears of repentance so that we may be restored in our communion with You. Amen.
Carol (we get two tonight): O Little Town of Bethlehem, and Away in a Manger
I love Sarah McLachlan
