          Advent One: Anticipation

The tradition of the Advent wreath goes back to the Middles Ages in Europe. It was an adaption of the pre-Christian ever-green wreath, which symbolized the circle of the seasons of the year, with candles for warmth and light in the deep of winter.

Our Advent wreath is made of boxwood, which is an evergreen, signifying continuous life. For us, the four candles represent the four weeks of Advent. The progressive lighting of the candles symbolizes the expectation and hope surrounding our Lord’s first coming into the world and the anticipation of His coming again to judge the living and the dead.
