It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Every December, as we get ready for Christmas, the 4 weeks that lead up to the big day are my favorite 4 weeks of the year.
The season is called ‘advent’ and it is a time of waiting and reflecting in anticipation.
There are 2 elements that I am especially looking forward to this year:
First is the lighting of the advent wreath. Each week there will be a reading that helps us think about the symbolism and the imagery of the season.
- Week 1 Hope
- Week 2 Peace
- Week 3 Joy
- Week 4 Love
Second is the music. We sing all the hymns and songs associated with the season and because they are so familiar, they take on a special meaning when we sing them as a congregation.
Below is a short video. I hope that you will come and join in the festivities!
