On this final Sunday of Advent, on the darkest day of the year, we will light the candle of HOPE in expectation of the coming light of Christ.  Christ is coming. Christ is always coming, always entering a troubled world, a wounded heart. And so having lit candles of love, joy, and peace, we light the candle of steadfast HOPE. When things look dark, we will CHOOSE HOPE.

blessings, Ernie
