Unwrapping ADVENT 2016 Hope

HOPE

Advent is a season of preparing for the birth of Jesus that we celebrate at Christmas.  Arranged in a wreath, itself an ancient symbol, four candles surround a fifth central "Christ" candle.

Each of the four candles represents a different aspect of faith.  The first candle is the "Hope" candle.  It reminds us that the hope embodied in Jesus calls us to also be hopeful.  To be hopeful means to actively look forward to a world with strong, healthy relationships between all people.
