Faith and Society Update - December 2021
Welcome to this month’s Faith and Society Update with news, resources and events. We share these with you at the start of Advent; a time of waiting and listening, a time of expectation and holding.
Advent, which for many churches and leaders is so often the busiest time of year; a time of planning and preparation, a time of activity and pressure. This year is no exception although it comes with the added anxiety of Covid-19 and all the stories of humanity’s failure. Maybe this is our Advent journey. We walk along the rocky path between Nazareth towards Bethlehem and we join Joseph and Mary on a very uncertain road towards a very uncertain future. And yet we receive and we share a message of hope in the midst of uncertainty, light in the midst of darkness and the certainty of God’s love in the midst of change and disruption.
Our prayer this Advent is that you are filled with the love of the Almighty God in the midst of busyness and uncertainty. Our prayer is that you know his peace as you journey towards the Christ Child born in the uncertainty and vulnerability of birth in the worst of places.
Diane, Hilary, Jane, Mary, Mat, Mike, Paul, Sharon, Steve and Wale
