The four weeks leading up to Christmas Eve and the birth of Christ are called Advent. Advent means coming or arrival. Today, we live between God’s first and second Advent. God’s first arrival into the world through the Christ Child, and God’s second arrival into the world in the fullness of time through the Risen Christ. Each week, in our Communion dialogue, we call it the “mystery of faith” Christ is born. Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.

We light candles on the Advent wreath to signify that Jesus, the Light of the World, is coming. As more candles are lit each week, the darkness of fear and hopelessness recede and the shadows of sin fall away as the Light of the Christ Child enters the world.
If you do not have an Advent Wreath, please consider either purchasing one, making one, or simply select four candles to light each week as you worship and/or do your devotions. Wreaths may be simple or elaborate, made from fresh material or from artificial greenery.
