Balance

Dear Parishioners,

Today we see clashing symbols in the sanctuary. The four candles of the Advent Wreath are all burning signifying the Fourth Sunday of Advent, AND we have the creche and the Christmas trees, as well as the roping and wreaths adorning the rest of the church, indicating that we are celebrating Christmas! Which is it? Because we are human, although made in God’s image and likeness, we have to balance decorating the church for holidays with the very real human demands of time…so, just for today, let’s  concentrate on the Advent Wreath and leave the balance for later this week!
