The annual St. Nicholas Bazaar was a great success, despite the frigid temperatures outside. People were lined up at the door to buy our famous church mice and other festive holiday items. All the proceeds from the Bazaar will go to local charities. The Bazaar helps fund many vital ministries in the Columbia area. Thanks everyone!

During the Season of Advent, many Christians mark time using an Advent Wreath. The colored candles are for the four Sundays in Advent. The white candle is for Christmas. Purple is both an emblem of royalty, and a sign of penitence. Advent is a penitential season when we prepare to meet God’s coming King. One of the candles is pink because, when Christians used to fast during Advent, it marked the week when the fast was a bit lighter–the third week in Advent.
When you light your Advent candles, it may be meaningful to re-read and think about the collect for the week that you heard in Sunday worship. Here is the collect for this week:
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation:
Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer;who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
