This week we focus on Sacred Spaces as our Advent series Reflecting the Sacred continues toward Christmas. This Sunday we light the Candle of Joy on our Advent wreath. The Candle of Joy is traditionally pink since pink or rose is the liturgical color of joy. This Sunday we celebrate the joy that comes from Christ being born in our world, and in the old world tradition of this being a time of fasting and prayer; we celebrate that Advent is half over. Only two weeks till Christmas! – Rick Oldenkamp.
