Dear Friends,

We prepare this December to joyfully celebrate Christmas. The four weeks before Christmas we call Advent, which is a solemn time to get ready for Christmas. When the colour in church is purple, there are no flowers, we don't sing the 'gloria' and we sing more solemn hymns. For the four Sundays of Advent we light a candle in the Advent Crown, one for each Sunday and the middle one at Christmas. Many will have Advent calendars marking down our days to Christmas. We don't over indulge. So we can build up a sense of excited anticipation, looking forward to celebrating the great feast of Christmas. In Church we explore the readings which show us why God sent His only Son into the world to be born in a stable in Bethlehem, to show his love for us.
