Advent I Week

November 28 - December 4, 2021 

Advent is the season of the church year just prior to Christmas. It is marked as the anticipation of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem, and the forward-looking gaze to the return of Christ and the coming of the Kingdom of God in its fullness at the last day.  For this reason, our readings reflect the end time.

As a celebration symbol, make an Advent wreath for your dinner table by placing four candles (blue is the color of hope) on a dinner plate (or in a wreath) then filling in with greenery. Each Sunday of Advent, light one candle to mark the beginning of the week. Throughout the week, continue to light that candle over and over, and remember that Christ comes into our darkness as the “light of the world.” Light additional candles to mark the number of weeks before Christmas. 

Activity:  The first candle is the Prophesy Candle: talk about your favorite promises that have been kept, and find ways to renew promises to each other during Advent.

Advent I Week Prayer

Dearest God, We thank you for coming to us in the form of a man, Jesus of Nazareth. We look forward to seeing you in a new way this Advent season, and ask that you might bring your light into each of our lives today.  AMEN.

Advent Rocks.jpg

Blue Stones are a symbol we carry with us - blue, the color of Advent hope - stones, to remind us that God is our rock.  We offer them to those who we meet, who may be in need of a sign of encouragement. They are always available in our baptismal font.
