Advent - The Candle of Love

We light this candle and remember,
How once in the midst of the ordinary,
A messenger of light
Declared that God's salvation was dawning.

Still stunned by the faithful example,
Of one young woman's “let it be to me”;
We offer ourselves in awestruck anticipation
Of what our living sacrifice might yet become.

Let this simple flame be our reminder,
Of the profound potential of ordinary lives
Offered in service to the Most High;
God's purpose accomplished in the midst of human frailty.

Not because we suppose that this world’s salvation,
Can be wrought through our endeavour alone.
But as those who have seen God's miracle of grace,
And believe that in these broken vessels, God's rich treasure can reside.
