Advent: Week 2

Second Sunday: December 9, 2012 - The "Bethlehem Candle" (second purple candle) is lit. This candle typically represents love and symbolizes Christ's manger.

Have whoever is lighting the candle read:
"We light this candle in love because there was no room in the inn."
 
Read:
  • Luke 2:1-20
Ask:
  • Why did Joseph and Mary go from their home in Nazareth and walk all the way to Bethlehem?
  • How do you think Joseph and Mary felt about spending the night where they kept animals?
  • Jesus the savior of the whole world wasn't born in a beautiful palace like other kings? Why do you think that was?
Read:
  • Luke 2:7
Activity:
  • Use some building blocks (Lego, MegaBlok, etc..) or popsicle sticks and glue to build a manger scene.
  • You can each take a character and work together on the building.
  • Take a picture of your final creation and share it on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram or email it to a friend.
Blow out the candles!
