It is the season of Advent; the coming of the Christ Child. The church breathes in the air of this new sacred time. The advent wreath honors the light of its candles, four of them, one candle lit each week for the season.

Four families of our church, each family chosen to light each candle, one per Sunday prior to Christmas Day. Light entering the world increment by increment, a light that comes from beyond the firmament. After this Sunday there will be one more candle to light, one more week of waiting before heaven meets earth.
