We Light This Third Candle

The series continues... By the way, I should have said earlier, but this series of introductory litanies is designed to work in parallel with John Bell's "Christmas is coming, the church is glad to sing" which wouldn't be a particular favourite, but hey ho...

We light this third candle...
to give thanks for John the Baptist
Drawing crowds out to hear him in the wilderness
Preparing the way for the coming King
Calling people to change direction
Warning of judgment and punishment
But offering forgiveness and cleansing
We light this candle...
May its light overcome the darkness.
