As you celebrate this Christmas, and in the coming weeks, I invite you to remember in your prayers the South Australian communities who have been devastated by the bushfire events of the past few days which have shocked us all.
Reflection of the Week - 10 December 2019
Posted in Faith
'You my child, will be called the Prophet of the most high. You will go ahead of the Lord, to prepare his road for him. To tell his people that they will be saved, by having their sins forgiven. Luke 1:76-77
Advent; the threshold of the Christmas season, a time to herald the keeping of God's promise of a Saviour. The Prophet invites me to prepare myself in readiness for the coming of the Christ Child. A time to wait, yet a time to act.
Newspaper ads and supermarket junk mail invite me to prepare for the coming Christmas season with a pantry full of food and drink. God invites to celebrate the coming of Jesus by sharing some of this bounty with a person in need.
“Lord Jesus Christ, lead me in my quest of self-examination in preparation for your coming, that I might forgive and be forgiven. Amen.'
