Advent

Well it's advent again, the readings from the lectionary this sunday are nicely obscure, just my luck it is a family service.

"Watch ye, therefore, for ye know not when the master of the house cometh" Matt. 24:44.  I always remember the King James version of this because of the Film Shawshank Redemption, not that either of these things will help on Sunday…

However I did have a little salvation in a charity called ALTERnativity.  The reflection for the 2nd of Advent should be enough to keep even the most mentally inactive congregant (during the sermon)busy.

"This advent reflect on the question 'what is Christmas preparing you for?' rather than 'How shall I prepare for Christmas?'"
