Celebrating the Winter Holidays with the UU Advent Wreath

November 28, 2018
from Rev. Dr. Sandra Fees
 
Seasonal celebrations help to create meaningful experiences at the holidays. This year, I invite you to explore the significance of the winter holidays with the UU Advent Wreath. We’ll be celebrating with this ritual at church, and you can incorporate it into your family celebrations at home as well.
 
Each Sunday morning and on Christmas Eve, we will light the Advent candles together at church and reflect on the themes of hope, peace, joy, and love.
