9th Day of Advent - A Celebration of Faith, Reflection, and Community

Nov 12, 2017

Greetings! Welcome to St Paul’s United Methodist Church, a beacon of hope and faith in our community. As we enter the Advent season, we invite you to join us in celebrating the 9th Day of Advent, a day of profound significance for believers around the world.

What is Advent?

Advent is a period of preparation and anticipation leading up to the celebration of Christmas. It is a time when Christians reflect on the coming of Jesus Christ, both as the baby in the manger and as the promised Savior. This season serves as a reminder of the hope, love, joy, and peace that Jesus brings into our lives.

Importance of the 9th Day of Advent

The 9th Day of Advent holds a special place in the hearts of believers as it signifies the nearing of the glorious celebration of Christ's birth. It is a day of fervent prayer, self-reflection, and unity within the community.

Traditions and Customs

  • Advent Wreath Lighting: On the 9th Day of Advent, we gather together to light a candle on the Advent wreath, symbolizing the increase of the light of Christ in the world. The candle represents the growing anticipation of Christmas and the hope that Jesus brings.
  • Scripture Readings: We engage in scripture readings that focus on the prophecies and promises surrounding Jesus' birth, fostering a deeper understanding of our faith and the fulfillment of God's plan.
  • Community Prayer: We come together as a community to pray for our loved ones, our community, and the world. This collective act of prayer strengthens our bond and reminds us of the power of faith in times of joy and struggle.
  • Charitable Acts: As part of our Advent observance, we actively engage in acts of kindness and charity, extending the love and compassion of Jesus to those in need. This may include supporting local food banks, organizing clothing drives, or participating in community outreach programs.
