The first Sunday of Advent is November 29. Already! As we have been doing all year, I want to encourage everyone to pray and practice faith in their homes during advent this year. If you don't already have one, I hope you will find a space for a Home Altar, a focal point in your home which can serve as a reminder that home is a place of worship too.
There are many things we can do during advent to worship in our homes. One is to have an advent wreath, and to light the candles and pray and read scripture every day. An advent wreath is a simple wreath with four (or sometimes five) candles. There are many ways that you can make your own advent wreath. We will include links to a few ideas for you, and there are even two already-made advent wreaths in the fellowship hall. We also have a number of pink and purple candles that you can use to make your wreath.
I would love if people would send in pictures of the advent wreaths they have made! We can use them in worship. You can also make a video of yourself lighting the advent candles.
