Unlike Lent, Advent is celebrated when the year is becoming darker and colder, moving into the death and dormancy of winter.


Before we can greet the coming of the light, we need to engage with some themes that are challenging and occasionally fearful.


Like the magi who travelled a long distance to search out and adore the infant Jesus, and who took some wrong turnings on the way, we too have a journey to undertake, before we find that we have.
