Sunday was the first day of Advent, the season before Christmas when we get ready for Jesus’ coming again and remember His first coming.
Every night we light a candle and read a portion of scripture. Each candle has it’s own meeting and symbolism: Hope, Peace, Joy, Love and the Christ candle.
At our Family Nite service at church, we made mini advent wreaths in mini flower pots.
First paint and/or decorate your pot however you would like. We used foam stickers and ribbon.
Insert the candles into the clay. If you want to re-insert new candles in later, pull the candles out right away. After the clay dries you can take the candles in and out as you like or need.
You can look on-line for a Bible reading schedule… I especially like this one HERE.
