Does the very thought of December and the holiday season make you cringe? It shouldn't.
In this Advent service, we will reflect on the theme, Good Tidings of Comfort and Joy. Advent is a time of preparing our hearts, not just our homes. We will look at how the use of the traditional Advent wreath can focus our hearts back on the true meaning of Jesus' birth.
This year, as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we will take a look at Martin Luther's Christmas hymn, From Heaven Above To Earth I Come, as well as some other Christian favorites.
