Advent Week 1: 30 November 2021

Each year when the Season of Advent begins, I realise anew how countercultural this season is. Advent asks a lot of us – increasingly so, it seems! – yet we have much to gain by practicing anticipation, yearning and hope in the Christian life. 

In Peace,

Christine

Advent Week 1: 29 Nov 2021

Angels abound in the scripture readings for this season, as do amazing births. We are encouraged to engage mystery through beholding, wonder and awe as we awaken to God’s presence everywhere around us.

In Peace,

Dear Friends,

The Season of Advent begins today and we will move through these weeks with the Gospel according to Luke. Below is Week 1 of the Advent devotionals. Hard copies are available at church but some of you may appreciate using an electronic copy. I hope this resource enriches your season.

Advent 2021 Week 1

Personally, I look forward to sharing the readings, reflections and prayers with Sean. I enjoyed preparing our space yesterday (see below).
