Advent is the four weeks leading up to Christmas when the church is getting ready to celebrate the birth of Christ.  Each week celebrates a gift that the promised Christ will bring:
Week 1: Hope
Week 2: Faith and Love
Week 3: Joy 
Week 4: Peace

We pray these reflections bring you many necessary and unexpected gifts this holiday season; but most of all, may they bring you hope, faith, joy and peace. 

These reflections come from the book "The Wonder of Advent: Experiencing the Love and Glory of the Christmas Season" by Chris Tiegreen.  Click here if you'd like to purchase this special book.
