Make a simple Advent wreath for the center of your group—three purple candles, one pink, a few evergreens.
LEADER: Advent is the threshold of a new Church year.
ALL: Let us open the door to God’s comings in our lives.
LEADER: We are waiting for the world to turn.
ALL: The days are short, the nights long, the chaos scary.
LEADER: We will celebrate the birth of the Christ child.
ALL: Jesus is the reason for the season, not the sales.
LEADER: Let us be among those of good will who seek peace on Earth.
ALL: Let us make room in our lives for every neighbor.
