The Message:

What is advent – the period of preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas and also of preparation for the Second Coming of Christ. It Varies from 22 to 28 days, starting on the Sunday nearest to St Andrew’s Day

 Advent 2022 starts Tomorrow November 27th. This will allow all four Sundays before Christmas and is a full 28 days (and yes it’s 2022, not 2023)


The 4 candles on the Advent wreath symbolize

  1. hope, –
  2. love –
  3. Joy (Rejoice) –
  4. Peace –

The candles are lit in that order,


  1. hope, – a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen
    1. (Like I hope this is an invigorating beatdown, with not too many Burpees and for some the hope D-Day takes off his shirt – but @Bloomer wasn’t here)
  2. love – a great interest and pleasure in something.
    1. (Like I love good fellowship and mumblechatter with my F3 brothers in the gloom and monkey humpers
  3. joy (Rejoice) -feel or show great joy or delight
    1. (Like that feeling when the workout starts, and…….when it ends)
  4. peace – freedom from disturbance; mental calm; serenity.
    1. (that feeling of ease I get knowing I’ve worked my body and mind hard to become a true #HIM)
