Unwrapping Advent

November 29, 2019


Christmas… it’s getting close, and the period of advent is a count down of (only) four Sundays till December the 25th. Advent is often associated with four traditional themes–which so often are not associated with our lived experience of the Christmas festival… How can we then have…:

  • Joy, Luke 2:1-20 (Dec 1)
  • Love, John 3:1-21 (Dec 8)
  • Hope, Luke 1:5-23 (Dec 15)
  • Peace, Luke 2:1-20 (Dec 22)
