Advent is such a busy time of year and we so easily forget that—at its heart—it is meant to be a time of preparation, waiting and hope for the coming of Jesus into our world and lives.
There are a few opportunities to reflect on the significance of Advent and to take time out from the busyness of this time of the year.
Listen to Jess Lyons preaching for the second week of Advent, with its theme of Peace, on overcoming fear and division through vulnerability.
