“Advent” means “coming” or “arrival.” During the season of Advent, we celebrate Christ’s coming into the world and watch with expectant hope for His coming again. The advent Sundays present an opportunity for discernment and personal examination, as the church prepares to celebrate the Nativity of the Lord and looks with hope for Christ’s return. To help us celebrate, we will be lighting candles on the Advent wreath. The candles signify that Jesus is the light of the world. The evergreens remind us that He is life and brings life to all of us. All of these are arranged in a circle because life in Christ has no end. Each Sunday, we will light an additional candle. Then on Christmas Eve, we will light all the candles including the center one, the Christ candle. We rejoice that Christ has come to us. HE IS EMMANUEL …. GOD WITH US.
