Advent in your home: Advent, from the Latin word for “coming,” is the season of four Sundays before Christmas in which we remember the long time of waiting for the birth of the Savior, and in which we prepare for Christ’s coming anew into our lives and into our world. We light candles each Sunday as a sign of the Light that first shone from a manger in Bethlehem, a Light that continues to shine in the dark corners of our lives. We encourage you to light candles at home during the service, and each evening during the Advent. You’ll need four candles plus a Christ candle; any size or color will do. You may wish to create a small worship center near where you watch worship as a place for candles, communion, and any objects, photos, etc. that signify the presence of the Holy in your home.
