The celebration of advent

​One of the ways that we celebrate Christmas in our worship during the holiday season is by using an advent wreath and candles reminding us of the meaning of Christmas. Traditionally, the Advent wreath symbolizes the passage of the four weeks of Advent. It is typically a circular candle holder that holds five candles. During the season of Advent one candle on the wreath is lit each Sunday until all of the candles, including the fifth candle, are lit on Christmas Eve. Each candle customarily represents an aspect of the spiritual preparation for the celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Most Advent wreaths use three colors of candles – purple, pink, and white.
 
The first candle is purple and it is the candle of prophecy or hope. Hope is more than being optimistic; it is a Christian virtue Paul identifies in 1 Corinthians 13. We have hope because God is faithful and he will keep the promises made to us.  The second candle is purple and it is the Bethlehem candle or the candle of preparation. God kept his promise of a Savior who would be born in Bethlehem. Preparation means to “get ready”. The second candle reminds us to be prepared to welcome our Savior. The third candle is pink and it is the Shepherd’s candle or the candle of joy. Like the shepherds who heard the good news of great joy for all the earth, we, too, must receive with joy the message of Jesus. The fourth candle is purple and it is the Angel candle or the candle of love. It is the message of love that God sent his Son as our Savior to redeem us from our sins. The fifth candle is white and it is the Christ candle. The white candle reminds us that Jesus is the spotless lamb of God, sent to redeem us from our sins.  His birth was for his death, his death was for our birth.
 
During the month of December leading up to our Christmas Eve service, we will have an advent wreath to remind us of the importance of preparing for “Christmas Presence.” This is a wonderful time to join us for worship so make plans to be with us for this Christmas season. You will be glad you did!
