Welcoming the Light
‘It is better to light a candle than to complain about the darkness. ’ This is the point behind Welcoming the Light, David Adam's creative ideas for services from Advent to Candlemas.
Advent and Christmas are about the Light of Christ coming into our lives, to conquer the darkness for each of us. David Adam's view is beautifully demonstrated in Welcoming the Light.
Each service in Welcoming the Light is based around a candle lighting, to mark Christ as the Light of the World and also to observe that we take this light into our own hands and hearts as we turn towards him.
Welcoming the Light has been cleverly written by David Adam in a way that also makes it suitable for individual worship, lighting a candle to welcome the new day and to commit our lives to God.
