Light four candles (3 purple and 1 pink)

 

Reflect: The more time we spend being still, the more we experience God's deep love for us.  Where previously we were too busy to notice, now we see signs of God's        presence everywhere.    We understand that God is preparing us to receive the most profound experience of love - in Jesus Christ.

 

Consider: How do you experience God's love for you and the world?  How can you share this with the world?

Light three candles (2 purple and 1 pink)

  

Reflect: In stillness with our sin and suffering, something marvelous happens; we begin tor recognize that we are not alone.  We hear God's words of love and assurance and realize God has been present with us along, even in the darkness.  Our hope is renewed.\

 Consider: Where do we see signs of God's presence in the midst of darkness?  How do you nurture hope in your life?

I'd rather be hated for who I am,

than loved for who I am not.

 

Who am I?

Death teaches me who am I?   While someone could tell you that you are not your body, death shows you.   While someone could remind you of the insignificance of the things that you cling to, death takes them all away in a second.  While people can teach you that men and women of all races are equal and that there is no difference between the rich and the poor, death instantly makes us all the same.

Respect for self

 Respect for others

 Responsibility of all your actions

 

God won't ask you what kind of care you drove,
But he will ask you how many people you drove who didn't have a car.

 God won't ask you the size of your house,
But he will ask you how many people you welcomed into your home.

 God won't ask you how much overtime you worked,
But he will ask how much overtime really benefited your family.
