Today we light the candle of hope. Hope is the desire for something to happen. We light a candle of hope as we wait for the birth of Jesus.
Read 2 Corinthians 4:18, "We don't focus on the things that can be seen but on the things that can't be seen. The things that can be seen don't last, but the things that can't be seen are eternal."
As we light the candle of hope, may we remember to focus on the unseen things that are most important.

Question - What are things you cannot see that are very important?
Watch the video of the children's book, One Little Bag: An Amazing Journey by Henry Cole. Watch it here.
Then, talk about these questions together:
- Donate flashlights & batteries to a homeless shelter, domestic abuse shelter, or other organization who would find them helpful. (Call first to make sure they need them)
