The Big Idea: The season of Advent is a time of preparing room, a whole season to practice Hope, the theme of today's Advent candle. Isaiah's prophecy looked to the future of a peace, where war was recognized as a fruitless enterprise. Israel was called to prepare room, where Justice and Joy could be anticipated with Hope. Israel was being invited to see that in the Lord's light, all can be free. The symbol for today is the wreath.
