Reflection for the Third Sunday of Advent, December 13

Nov 14, 2017

Welcome to Peace Church, where we come together as a community to celebrate and explore our faith. On this page, we invite you to join us as we reflect upon the meaning and significance of the Third Sunday of Advent, which falls on December 13 this year.

The Advent Season: A Time of Anticipation and Preparation

Advent is a special time in the Christian calendar, marked by anticipation and preparation as we await the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a season of hope, joy, love, and peace, and each Sunday leading up to Christmas holds its own unique significance.

The Third Sunday of Advent: Celebrating Joy and Rejoicing

The Third Sunday of Advent, often referred to as Gaudete Sunday, is a time of celebration and rejoicing. The word "Gaudete" translates to "rejoice" in Latin, and it serves as a reminder to find joy even amidst the challenges and difficulties of life.

During this Sunday's reflection, we will explore the theme of joy and its importance in our lives. We will delve into the Scriptures, share personal stories, and engage in meaningful discussions as we seek to deepen our understanding of joy and its role in our faith journey.

Our Community's Celebration of Advent

At Peace Church, we embrace the Advent season with great enthusiasm. Our community comes together every Sunday during Advent to light the Advent wreath, sing hymns, and participate in prayers and reflections. We extend an open invitation to all, welcoming individuals and families from all walks of life to join us in these cherished traditions.

We believe that by coming together in worship and fellowship, we can cultivate a sense of unity, love, and shared purpose. Our hope is to create a meaningful and inclusive space where people of diverse backgrounds can find solace, inspiration, and a deeper connection to their faith.
