Fellow pastors, Just looking for how you do Advent in your church, if you do it. I had been doing the candle lighting wreath in years past, but am leaning away from it this year. It seems to feel too sacramental and traditionalistic, and even though we do Scripture readings with it, I'm losing confidence in it as a useful practice. I'll still use some advent-oriented hymns in worship and references to Christ's coming in preaching. I would love to hear from others on this. Particularly from those who have given it more thought and study than I have. Thanks.
