Worn around our hearts in sweet surrender
A prelude to a beautiful season.

A three fold coming of the King.
The first coming at Bethlehem
The present coming in the Word and Eucharist
The second coming at the close of the age.
The purple candle
The candle of hope and forecast.
The Word made flesh in all humility
A firelight in our hearts to warm the season
In preparation of the Light of the World.
The Advent wreath
A historic wreath of love and waiting.
A ritual displayed in evergreen form
Encasing the candles of the season
Attracting hearts in go purple symbolism.
