Advent Reflections

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to our Advent Reflections for 2020.

I’ve chosen the theme of grace. It’s not a theme that can be taken in isolation, as there are aspects that may need to be addressed first in order to make grace clearer. So we’ll touch on mercy, and then on grace over the following days.

Encourage others
There are a number of people from outside the Benefice who receive our Advent and Lent reflections. There may be some in our benefice who do not yet receive these mailings because we do not have their email address. Perhaps you might encourage them to receive by passing the message on to them. I’d also encourage you to forward these email reflections to any friend or family member you feel may benefit from them.

Questions and queries
I am happy to reply to any questions, queries or comments you may wish to put to me. I don’t know all the answers, but I’ll respond as best I can.

With Blessings,
