Sermon Notes

Today we are welcoming Bruce DeSoto as guest speaker. For this week, we’ll cover the third candle known as the candle of joy. During this third week of advent, this Sunday celebrates the passage in Philippians 4:4-5, its verses extolling readers to “rejoice” for “indeed the Lord is near.” In other words, this week celebrates the joy of Christ’s coming to earth. Believers want to highlight the importance of joy in advent season. During a time where depression is at an all-time high and people seem to be in the most despair, this candle offers a bright light during a dark time.
