Bring On December!

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!
