Yesterday saw the beginning of Advent and we at the Church of the Good Shepherd celebrated by lighting the first candle on our Advent Wreath and with an Advent Carol Service in the evening. It was a joy to be able to welcome our friends from Murrayfield Churches Together to that service and despite the weather a goodly number braved the elements for a good sing and to listen to the Advent themed readings predicting the brith of the Christ.
O come, O come Emmanuel is very much the theme of Advent and it is a call to order for us as well. For as we sing and pray for the return of the Christ then we should also be prepared to meet him at anytime. We have to be prepared to live up to and to respond to the answer to our prayers should Christ decide to return today. Are you ready? What might you have to do to ready yourself? Be alert and watchful.
