For the last several years we have made the lighting of the Advent Candle a regular part of the Christmas Celebration here at North Glencoe. This is a tradition that began in the time of the Protestant reformer Martin Luther. During each Sunday of the Advent season, we light a different candle.
The first candle symbolizes expectation, while the second symbolizes hope, the third joy and the fourth purity and peace. The Christ candle is lit on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day reminding Christians that Jesus is the light of the world.
