There is so much beauty and rich tradition during the season of Advent to prepare for the coming of Jesus, the babe of Bethlehem. When you see the altar draped in purple, remember your King who came to bring you life and salvation. If you don’t have one already, consider getting an Advent wreath for your home as you prepare for the coming of Christ, the light of the world. Give thanks to God for the confession of faith He gave to His people to shine His light in dark places. Learn about the tradition of reciting the O Antiphons (found in Lutheran Service Book along with hymn #357 “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel) and incorporate it into your Advent devotions. Anticipate with joy the coming of our Lord!
