The Graces of Sorrow – Joy (Gaudete)

December 15, 2019
Speaker – Ian Campbell
Psalm 40
The pink candle in the midst of the purple/blue advent wreath is called “Gaudete,” a Latin word that means “rejoice” and specifically refers to a 16th Century carol with the exact exhortation in song. It is placed well into the season that has a growing sense of desperation amidst our sorrow as we long for Advent.
