Here is a resource that will dramatize the lighting of the Advent candles during your worship service. The lighting of each candle is proceeded by a statement, which the author suggests may be read from offstage.
The series of statements reveal the significance of the traditional Advent characters: the angel, the shepherds, the wisemen, Mary and the Christ Child.
This simple but dramatic resource provides an explanation of the deeper meaning of the events preceding Jesus' birth, as they spell out the relationship of these individuals to Christ, the Light of the World. Wayne L. Tilden
