            Rev. Cheryl's Message for December 3, 2017

Welcome on this first Sunday of Advent! Theologian Gertrud Nelson tells us that the Advent wreath can be traced back to the Romans’ ancient rite of waiting in the darkness for the sun’s return and the Feast of the Sun they celebrated on December 25th. They would take a wheel off their wagon and fasten torches to it to see them through the darkness of December. They would also bring evergreen boughs inside and attach them to the ‘wheeled’ torches that lit their homes. To them it was a sign of the longed-for spring. More than 300 years ago German Christians took the same elements the Romans used to fashion a Christian symbol—the Advent wreath we light in December darkness as we wait to celebrate the Feast of the Son on Dec. 25th.

The fact that the Romans took a wheel off their wagons points to something important. Our society speeds up in December in a mad rush of shopping, parties, school concerts, etc. Our church asks us to do something different—to slow down, sit in the darkness, light candles, listen to Scripture’s wisdom, sing some songs and pray. We are encouraged to ‘take the wheels off’ our busyness and park ourselves where we will hear God’s words of promise and hope. May this Advent bring you slowly and surely into the light of God’s Son!
