Advent Lessons and Carols

 

On Sunday, December 3rd we will welcome the Advent Season with a service of Lessons and Carols.  This ancient tradition is intended as a preparation for the Christmas celebration.  We will light our Advent wreath, a visual symbol marking the progress of the season of Advent.  We will be guided on our Advent Journey by the Advent Star which has a threefold symbolism.  It recalls the star which guided the wise men from their homes to Bethlehem where they found and worshipped the infant Christ.  It testifies to the greatness of God the Creator who made the numberless stars.  And it points to Chris, ‘the bright and morning star.’
