Sunday 29th November - 1st Sunday of Advent

Advent Liturgy for 29th November

A light shines in the wilderness, shines through a bush, shines across the desert sands.
A sign to a reluctant leader, a sign to an enslaved people, a people trapped, a people locked down, a people seeking liberation, a people waiting to be free.

Bible reading: Exodus 6: v 6b, 7 & 8 “I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgement. 7 I will take you as my people, and I will be your God. You shall know that I am the Lord your God, who has freed you from the burdens of the Egyptians. 8 I will bring you into the land that I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I will give it to you for a possession. I am the Lord.”’

(Pause)  for a moment reflect on your own stories of waiting and hoping.

May we catch a glimpse of the distant light. Amid the distractions of the lockdown may we hear the soft whisper of the voice of God. Amen
