Tranquility with Tea - Here's to Advent
So, pull out your Advent calendar, candles, and creches as we begin the annual journey to Christmas Day. Preparing for the coming of Christmas has been a seasonal pastime since children first discovered presents under the tree. However, the giddy excitement isn’t reserved just for kids, even adults anticipate the big day!
Our service on this, the first evening of Advent, will find us reflecting on what is familiar as well as what might be unusual, as we begin our Advent pilgrimage this year. Whether old or new, our traditions, rituals, and the icons involved give special meaning to the season of Advent and Christmas.
A portion of the offering collected has been designated for Carol’s Hope – honoring those sharing their creative energy as part of the service on this evening.
