On Saturday evening, December 5th, peace, joy, and beauty abounded at our annual Advent Spiral event. Almost 50 adults and children joined us for this very special evening together. Beginning with nativity explorations from around the world and a beautiful story, our event then shifted downstairs into the darkened North Hall where a huge spiral of natural greens was constructed, waiting to be lit by more than 50 candles. One by one, each child and adult took their own turn inside the spiral, filling it gradually with light. Festive snacks and natural ornament creations rounded out this truly special event for all ages. Where do you find peace and beauty this Advent season? Check out our pictures for a glimpse of the joy and serenity met by all last Saturday.
