This is such a busy time for all of us but it is also a time for reflection. It is a time to still our hearts. As we light the Second Candle of Advent, let us remember the world's loss of a great leader and a principled man. Let us also remember Pearl Harbor and its aftermath that still linger with us.
Second Sunday of Advent
In the hustle and bustle, I try to make the Advent special by lighting white candles. I think they bring serenity to the Season--a little on the somber side, perhaps.
I hope that you will have a chance to listen to "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming" as sung by Renee Fleming with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It is just beautiful and so appropriate for the Season.
