Advent Wreath

Rev. Hotchin led our assembly this morning, she talked to us about the advent wreath.
It is made up of circles, circles have no end and no beginning, it also has a cross to remind us that Christ died for us.
She added holly, it is prickly, like the crown of thorns Jesus wore on the cross.
As there are 4 weeks until Christmas, Rev. hotchin added 4 candles, one for each week & a last one to be lit as Christmas Day begins.
The 1st candles reminds us of the grands kings, the 2nd is for the prophets, the 3rd is for John the Baptist (friend of Jesus) & the 4th is for Mary.
The last one is for the birth of Jesus.
