Advent Wreath

posted Dec 2, 2018, 2:43 PM by Bowmansville UMC   [ updated Dec 2, 2018, 2:47 PM ]


The Advent wreath began in the time of the Protestant reformer Martin Luther.  During each Sunday of the Advent season, we focus on one of the four virtues Jesus brings us:  (1) Hope, (2) Love, (3) Joy and (4) Peace.  Others consider the lighting of the first candle to symbolize expectation. 

The Christ candle is lit on Christmas Eve & Christmas day, reminding Christians that Jesus is the light of the world.  The order and exact wording vary among churches, but the wreath continually reminds us of whom we are called to be as followers of Jesus each and every day, as the circle is unbroken in symbolism.
