Unwrapping ADVENT 2016 Peace

Peace

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 second candle is the "Peace" candle. It reminds us how God, announced by the prophet Isaiah, looked toward a new creation, one in which there is comprehensive and lasting peace and security for all.  Jesus' birth was a sign of that new world.
