The navigation box above is colored blue, the color of the paraments (cloths that decorate the altar) for the Advent season. (Many churches use the older color purple for this season. Fine! We mean no offense to those whose altar paraments are purple today.) This season is a period of anticipation; it leads us to its climax in the Festival of the Nativity, also called "Christmas." The word "advent" means Coming, and during Advent we meditate on three "comings" of Jesus, God's Son:

The color blue reminds us of infinity ("the sky's the limit," i.e., without limit) and eternity. Yet the infinity of space, where it touches our planet, becomes visible to us as a thin blue mantle around our world. Likewise, the infinite Son of God has touched our finite created universe in His Incarnation. Think of the deep blue color of the pre-dawn sky, and the anticipation it creates in your heart.

About us: Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a conservative Lutheran church that combines traditional Lutheran worship with serious Bible-based teaching in a friendly atmosphere. We seek to avoid the two extremes: not too stuffy, and not too showy: in other words, just right!

Blessed Advent to you! God bless you in this season of preparation for Jesus' coming!
