Third Sunday of Advent: Joy

Joy. It is something we all want in life. We like being happy and we like feel-good moments. However, what we really desire, and need, is real joy. But how do we obtain it? In our message for today, our pastor focuses on the third Candle of Advent, the candle of Joy. Our scripture text is John 15:1-17. Jean Glosson and Sue Edwards are our Advent readers and candle lighters.


Points to Remember:

  1. To have joy we must connect with the true vine
  2. To have joy we must obey the true gardener
  3. To have joy we must put ourselves last
