Advent is just around the corner!  We change the Sunday service and the colors to reflect the season.  We switch to Prayer "B" and add in the lighting of the Advent candles.  The season is one of preparation for the birth of our Savior. In this time of preparation we look inward as we await in great expectation for the coming of the Christ Child.
