CrossWay Advent Wreath

This past Sunday marked the first Sunday in Advent.  Our Advent wreath this year is a little different.  Here’s a picture:

We’re using a wreath made of thorns to remind us that the birth of Christ led to His crucifixion.  As Simeon told Mary the mother of Jesus: “And a sword will pierce your own soul too” (Luke 2:35).  It’s a reminder of the purpose for which He came: to save us from our sins through His death on the cross.

Instead of the traditional large white Christmas candle, we’re using a Mennonite peace lamp.  It’s a reminder that Christ is our peace.  He brings us peace with God, gives us inner peace, and makes it possible for us to have peace with one another.
