This collection includes the “Advent: Introduction” video, five Advent Liturgy videos, and a PDF that has guidelines for how and when to use the videos during the Advent season as well as pages for each video’s Liturgy.
For congregations unfamiliar with Advent, this introduction helps serve as primer for its practices and tra- ditions, ones that have for centuries helped Christians focus on and commemorate the true reason of the Christmas season.
Having strayed from the path of righteousness, The Hope Candle creates a yearning in our souls for the coming Shepherd who will guide us.

On the eve of His birth, The Christ Candle leads us into receiving - at long last - the promised Child: Immanuel, God with us.
