An Advent Message from Bishop Megan Traquair

The Season of Advent is now upon us. It is a season of delightful preparation that always includes the deeper notes of waiting, expectation, and repentance. Thus, not many weeks past the Feast of All Saints, we find ourselves intentionally re-entering a time of waiting for Christ. We stand with all of the peoples in Scripture who watched for God to act in the world.

The Episcopal church has a very robust but simple way to keep the Season of Advent. We place an Advent Wreath in our worship space; glowing with light, often surrounded by evergreens as a sign of life. Each day in December we look toward the Light of the World - Jesus Christ. In remembrance of his coming we light the candles on our wreaths at the beginning of worship each of the four Sundays of the season. Read more.
