This Sunday is the second Sunday in Advent, traditionally a time to think and reflect on prophets and their message that we need to change our ways as God’s Kingdom of Justice and Peace is near. Lois will be leading us in our worship, the Rev Hayley Matthews will be leading us in our celebration of the feast of life and Heston will be sharing his thoughts.
The readings for this Sunday are Psalm 23 and Matthew 11:28-30.
The weather forecast doesn’t look too good but we will have the heating on and there will be hot drinks and a warm welcome for everyone.
They are on the move again and meeting new friends. Throughout Advent this knitted Holy Family and “friends” will be travelling around the Leeds area seeking refuge in the homes of anyone who cares to look after them for a night or two. This gives us a chance to think about what it means to be a refugee and also to reflect on those special refugees of 2000 years ago.
Their first stop this Advent was with Jan, brother otter, sister penguin and other friends.
