While I don't adhere to any man's ideas or prescribed readings, rote memorization, etc...regarding worship.
I like the idea of Advent and lighting candles commemorating the Fullness of Christ. I do believe it's important to honor Christ; on His birth, His Death, and His Eternal gift --while waiting for His Promised Return.
This is my first ever celebration of Advent in our home by lighting candles.
I think it's pretty!
When I see these candles...it is a joyful reminder to me.
"Oh give thanks to the LORD for He is good: His loving kindness is everlasting."
