We will once again adorn our sanctuary for the Advent season with garlands, wreaths, candles, chrismons, and poinsettias. Choirs and congregation alike will sing carols and narrators will proclaim the significance of the service. Our Advent theme this year is “Sources of Light.” We will be visually inspired by artwork located on the worship folder covers, items in the sanctuary windows that symbolize light, and new Advent decorations. Once again, our stoles and banners will be changed to Advent Blue. This is meant to inspire hope, and to encourage us to keep watch for the promised light of Christ, changing night into day, darkness into light, and filling our lives with hope, love, joy, and peace.
