Interesting Advent Article

I ran across this article this morning and really found it interesting. I am pretty sure I knew the Advent wreath had not been around that long but did not realize that it only made it to the United States in the 30’s!

That would mean that we actually have church members who may remember the first time they were used in a church. I wonder what kind of conversations popped up around this new tradition back then?
