Sermon delivered by Max Broadway 27th November 2016
Christmas is coming! Today is the first day of Advent! How quickly has the year fled past! We can put a date on it – 25th December, and we can plan and prepare. Today’s readings remind us that Jesus, having arrived amongst us in the shape of a baby on that very first Christmas, and having left us in his physical incarnation soon after his resurrection, will return. And not only that, his return is immanent! Do you believe it!? It’s not an event we can put a date on, but the lesson of today’s readings, the urging of our Lord is that it *will* happen, and we need to be prepared!
