Every year, I have to ask Doug to remind me what the weeks in advent stand for. Since I don’t have a handy notebook near, I’m posting this here to remind me throughout the season, and so that I can find it with a snappy little blog search next year.
Advent is four weeks long. The four weeks are:
- Hope – the Prophet
- Love – the Holy Family
- Joy – the Shepherds
- Peace – the Magi
On week 5, we celebrate the traditional “80-Proof Christmas” candle, wherein all music pastors pass out from exhaustion and slip into the numb embrace of Bookers.
