In the Service sheet the vicar explained the meaning of Advent :
WHY ADVENT ?
- Advent is full of the present and not yet of God's kingdom. Advent speaks to the tension between reality and God's future. Advent helps us get a sense of what it feels like to be secure in what is to come yet still have to wait.
- To help us see beyond our present.
- To give us a lens through which to see God at work when it seems only evil gets the spotlight.
- To assure us that God has secured a future for us that breaks into our present and really, truly changes our here and now.
DETAILS OF CHRISTMAS SERVICES WILL BE POSTED ON BROADWAY BLOG Later in the week.
