As we light the candle on our wreaths this First Advent Sunday, we join with Christendom today and from centuries past to enter a season of meaningful and joyful devotion. Together we freshly reflect on the glorious mystery of God Incarnate, the Holy Christ Immanuel – God with us.
At Advent, we remember that without Him we are cold and empty stables. We humbly offer Him the straw of our lives. We ready our hearts and prepare Him room. We invite a King to find a resting place in our lowly mangers, and to come and warm our hearts again with new-born wonder and amazement. Come Lord Jesus. T.Long
