Today we enter the holy season of Advent, where we reflect and prepare for the coming of Christ Jesus our Lord.
This first week, Christians often reflect on the biblical theme of Hope, and the folks at the Bible Project have put together a great animated video exploring how the Bible treats this vital gift.
At St. Luke's we take time each week in Advent to light the candles in our Advent Wreath. While we are not gathering together in our Parish Church at this time, we can still carry on this tradition from our homes.
The Candle Lighting liturgy can be found in our Service of Morning Prayer. If you have candles at home you can light them during your practice of these home prayers, or you can follow along with our Advent Lighting Video.
Many blessings to you this first week of Advent, and may the Holy Spirit fill us with His hope.
