Love's Pure Light: An Overture to Christmas - December 1, 7:30 pm & December 3, 7 pm
Join us for a magical and inspiring beginning to the Christmas season. A concert performed by full orchestra and choir with soloists will be followed by a lovely reception featuring delicious food, drink and time to visit with friends and the musicians. While there are many kinds of light that are part of the Christmas story, the image chosen as a symbol for this year’s events is a beautiful Advent wreath with five lit candles – four red and one white. The evergreen wreath reminds us of the fragrance that spreads through our homes in the Christmas season from trees, garlands and wreaths.
The candlelight beckons us to join with family and friends to celebrate. But, the Advent wreath also has deeply Christian meaning. The wreath is round, symbolizing God’s infinite love. The evergreen foliage symbolizes the hope of eternal life. Four red candles, lit weekly during the time of waiting for the coming of Jesus Christ, represent hope, peace, joy and love. The white candle in the middle, lit on Christmas, is the Christ candle. The “son of God, love’s pure light” as we sing in Silent Night.
