Unity Candle Ceremony | My Longing
______ and ______, these two candles represent your individual lives. Without Christ they are without a flame. The Holy Spirit, through others, has set your hearts on fire with love for Christ. I light your two candles with flame from these outer candles, witnesses beside you. They represent your parents who have raised you, friends who have loved you and all who have shared the Gospel of Christ with you. Through faith in Christ and the confession of His name, each of your lives has been set on fire and has become a light to shine on, and to ignite, others. Today you stand in the presence of God, beneath the cross of Christ who has redeemed you with His blood, and you have declared your love and commitment to each other and to Him, believing sincerely that God has led you, each to the other, that you may walk the pathway of life together as one. The lighting of the middle candle symbolizes the union of your lives and witness. From now on, you will live and grow together, with Christ
