Advent: a time of prepration

advent wreathSunday 2nd December marks the beginning of the season of Advent – a time to prepare not just for the annual celebration of Jesus’ birth at Christmas, but also a time to think about preparing for his second coming at the end of all things.
In church we use the themes of light and darkness to reflect on how we can prepare ourselves and the world around us to make God welcome.
The Ground Floor Group’s Reflections for Advent  is a useful downloadable resources, or you may wish to use SPCK’s new advent weekly reflections.  The Archbishop of Canterbury is also doing a series of daily podcasts during Advent, which you can download from the Church of England’s website.
