Lighting the Christ Candle

 
The Lighting of the Christ Candle opens each of our Presbyterian Women Gatherings and Busiiness Meetings.
 
L: We welcome the light and peace of Christ among us as we gather in His service. Let us receive the presence of the Holy Spirit and allow that power to guide our work this day. As we light the Christ Candle, let us remember:
 
C:  Light is a gift from God, a gift to be shared. Jesus came into our midst as the light of the world and the Holy Spirit is present to illumine our work and witness. This is the light of Christ breaking into our lives, crumbling walls, setting us free to live, work and love wholly!
