Dear Special Family,

A most joy-filled Advent season to you! Advent means “coming”. Christmas Advent is that wondrous period of four weeks in which Christians happily anticipate the celebration of the coming of Jesus, God’s greatest love gift.

Long ago, European Christians set aside this period for prayers and preparation for an appreciation of family and for a renewed dedication to God.

It was then, the beautiful custom of using an Advent wreath in churches and family gatherings began. What an appropriate symbol for the coming of Christ! The wreath was in a circle, no beginning nor end. Jesus, the Son of God, always has been and always will be. The wreath was covered with greens, speaking of the new life we have in Jesus. The candles told of Jesus, the Light of the world.

One new candle was lit on each of the four Sundays in Advent. The fifth candle, in the center of the wreath, was the “Christmas” or “Christ” candle to be lit on Christmas Day.

In recent years, as parents have sought ways to make Christmas more meaningful, there has been a growing interest in reestablishing this important tradition in America.

And so our gift to you is this Advent guide, designed to encourage your family to focus on the joyous Christmas message for the entire Advent season.

Whether you have an heirloom Advent Wreath or just a foil pie plate turned upside down to hold the candles, you will find this guide helpful to explain the significance of each candle. Appropriate Scripture is suggested. There are also Advent related activities for the entire family.

May those who are looking for the Lord Jesus find Him in your home. May you love Him and each other more because of Christmas.

~ Charles P. Scott

A blessed and wonderful Christmas to all of you.
