‘Advent is perhaps the most notable season in the church year when we wait! The word is a version of the Latin word meaning ‘coming’. We wait expectantly for the coming of the King, who as we know, chose an unmajestic and extraordinarily humble entrance into our broken world.¬†

Come apart and reflect on this awesome wonder. Listen for the ‘word’ for you from the King of kings who has so much to say, if we would stop long enough to listen.’
