Christ, Be Our Light
THE NICENE CREED
Today’s readings can be found on number 881 in the Gather Hymnal.
I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things
visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord
Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages. God from
God, Light from Light, true God from true
God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with
the Father; Through him all things were
made. For us men and for our salvation he
came down from heaven, and by the Holy
Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and
DISMISSAL OF THE CHILDREN
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius
Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and
rose again on the third day in accordance
with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the
living and the dead and his kingdom will
have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the
giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with
the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken
through the prophets.
1 Thessalonians 3:12–4:2
I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I confess
one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the
resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Mystery of Faith
When Will Messiah Come?
Almighty God, we cry to You; when will Messiah come?
When will You wipe our tears away? When will Messiah come?
Spirit of truth, we call unto You; when will Messiah come?
When will our sorrow turn to joy? When will Messiah come?
O come, O come Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel.
Lord of the promise, hear our plea; when will Messiah come?
When will we greet Emmanuel? When will Messiah come?
Luke 21:25-28, 34-36
